The easy steps to making Chipotle Flank Steak and Pineapple Salsa Tacos,
Flank Steak and Pineapple Salsa Tacos
3 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 teaspoon powdered chipotle Chile plus 1 pinch, divided
1 teaspoon kosher salt
I teaspoon Cumin
Juice from 3 fresh limes
1 Cup Fresh Cilantro, Chopped
1 pound flank steak, trimmed of fat
Mix the Above Ingredients and Marinate over night
Grilled Pineapple Salsa
1 fresh pineapple, peeled, cored and cut into 1/2-inch-thick rings
1 red bell pepper, finely diced
1/2 cup minced red onion
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
2 Fresh Limes, squeezed
¼ fresh Jalapeno, Tiny dice and seeded
½ teaspoon Kosher Salt
Grill pineapple rings until moderately charred, 1 to 2 minutes per side.
Dice the pineapple and transfer to a medium bowl. Add bell pepper, onion, cilantro, Lime Juice, the remaining pinch of chipotle and the 1/2 teaspoon salt; toss to combine.
Grilling the flank steak:
Place steak on the hot grill. If you are using a gas grill, cover the grill. Grill for 4-6 minutes on each side. Half way through grilling on each side, turn the steak 90° so that you get more grill marks.
How do you know if the steak is done? The best way to tell is to poke it with your finger tips. While the steak is still raw, test it with your fingers; it will be quite squishy. That's what a very rare steak feels like. As the steak cooks the muscles contract and firm up. Touch the tip of your nose and that's what a very well done steak feels like.
Flank steak is best eaten medium rare; well done will make it too tough. When the steak has cooked to your preferred level of doneness, remove from the grill and place on a cutting board. Cover with aluminum foil to hold in the heat and to keep the steak from drying out, and let rest for 10 minutes.
Make very thin slices, against the grain, and at a slight diagonal so that the slices are wide.
Serve the sliced steak in the warm tortillas with the pineapple salsa.
