Directions

Cover flank steak on one side with the pickled jalapenos, then turn over let sit at room temperature, covered for 1 hour.

Preheat the grill or broiler.

Season both sides of the steak with salt and pepper and place on a hot grill or under the broiler. Cook the steak for 5 to 6 minutes on each side (for medium rare), and then chop into 1/4-inch pieces.

Heat a small saute pan and add 1 tablespoon canola oil. Warm corn tortillas for 30 seconds on each side, adding more oil as necessary. Stack 2 tortillas together, place the meat in the center of the tortillas and top with the onion and cilantro. Drizzle a teaspoon of the salsa de arbol on top of each taco.

    I would have never thought to marinate beef in pickled jalapenos. The steak itself was very flavorful and the tacos all together were simple and very authentic-tasting. Great weeknight meal because it's so simple to put together!
