  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak
  • 1/3 cup oil
  • juice of 1 lemon
  • juice of 2 limes
  • juice of 1 orange
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 8 6-inch flour tortillas
  • chopped cilantro, avocado, onions, and lime wedges for serving


  • Whisk together oil, lemon juice, lime juice, orange juice, garlic, chili powder, and salt. Pour into a large ziploc bag.
  • Add steak to the bag, press out all of the excess air, and seal the bag.
  • Chill for 30 minutes.
  • Use tongs to transfer steak to a preheated grill or grill pan, discard excess marinade.
  • Grill for about 8 minutes on each side or until cooked to desired doneness. (I like mine just a little pink in the middle for best flavor and ultra juicy/tender steak).
  • Assemble tacos with steak in the tortillas, topped with your favorite garnishes like avocado, onions, cilantro, salsa, and fresh squeezed lime juice.
