Recipe courtesy of thebar.com


3 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 cup Don Julio® Reposado Tequila
2 tablespoons fresh lime-juice
2 dashes Tabasco sauce
4 cloves garlic, minced
1 small onion, chopped
Other ingredients:
1-1⁄2 pounds flank steak
Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper
12 flour tortillas
Pico de Gallo (can substitute with Cuervo Gold™ Salsa Cruda)
Sour cream
Shredded cheese


In a large bowl, combine the marinade ingredients
Add the flank steak and toss to coat
Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours, turning the meat halfway through
Preheat grill or broiler to high
Remove steak from marinade and pat dry
Season both sides of steak with salt and pepper
Grill for about 10 minutes per side for medium-rare
Let rest 10 minutes before slicing
Slice the steak against the grain into 1/4-inch thick diagonal strips
Serve with warmed tortillas and the toppings of your choice

Serves 6

TIP: Next time you grill; try the marinade with chicken or shrimp. Since these are tender meats they shouldn’t take as long to marinade. An hour will probably do the trick.
