What’s more exciting than a nice, juicy steak dinner? Oh, wait, we know the answer: these flank steak tacos. They’re about a million times more fun to eat, and they’re topped with a cool, crunchy cucumber salsa. You win again, tacos. You win.
Psst: When slicing the steak for serving, we instruct you cut “against the grain.” What’s that mean? Basically, all steak cuts are made up of parallel-running muscle fibers, and cutting against the grain—across these fibers—eliminates their unpleasant toughness. Once you find the direction the fibers are going on the steak, make your slices perpendicular to them. This way, they’re short, and therefore as tender as possible.
