Flat iron steak is an inexpensive but totally flavorful cut of meat, especially when marinaded in a citrus adobo sauce to make my favorite steak tacos.
Whether it’s 10 people or just two, having people over for a weekend meal doesn’t have to put the host into a stress-induced coma. The trick is to serve a popular main (with a twist) that can be prepped ahead and have your guests put their hands to work.
This Grilled Steak Tacos recipe is part of my Weekend Eats series, where I’m sharing a seasonal recipe idea for what to have for dinner come Saturday and Sunday, with the occasional breakfast or brunch thrown in. Rounding out the posts are a few suggestions of what to pair with my main dish, recipes from other food bloggers, and some favorites from FoodieCrush too.
I’ve made these steak tacos a bunch of times and that’s how I knew they’d be the perfect dish for my Smudge’s birthday celebration with the family. They’re always pretty relaxed affairs but my goal this time was to have EVERYTHING done ahead of time so I could sit back and actually have fun. I’m always jealous of my sister in law Ginni who makes this happen when we head to her house.
And guess what? Smudge may have gotten all the presents, but success was mine.
