Flank Steak Tacos with Cilantro Lime Marinade

Since it's so hot outside today and summer is here for at least this week, 
I felt the need to grill steak and make some tacos. 

Marinade Ingredients
2 pounds of flank steak 
Juice of 1 lime
1 garlic clove
Handful of cilantro
1/3 cup of olive oil
2 teaspoons of honey
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes
Salt and pepper

Taco Ingredients
Marinated Steak
Pico de Gallo

In a small food processor combine the garlic, lime, and cilantro.  Add in the remaining marinade ingredients to the cilantro lime mix and process until fully blended.  Cover the meat with the marinade and let sit for at least half an hour before grilling.  Cook the meat on medium-high heat for about 6 to 10 minutes on each side or to the temperature that you prefer.

Assemble the tacos with whatever toppings sound good to you.  I added pico de gallo, avocado, and cilantro and made my tacos with corn tortillas.  Enjoy.

This original recipe can be found at Eat Live Run.
