  • 1
    Place beef in large, resealable food-storage plastic bag. In small bowl, mix taco seasoning mix, brown sugar, garlic, ground red pepper and lime juice. Pour marinade over beef. Seal bag; refrigerate, and marinate 8 to 10 hours.
  • 2
    In medium bowl, mix bell peppers, onions, oil, cumin, coriander and salt; set aside.
  • 3
    Spray 12- to 13-inch round grill pan with cooking spray; heat over medium-high heat. Remove beef from marinade, and place in pan; discard any remaining marinade. Cook 10 to 20 minutes, turning once, until instant-read thermometer inserted in thickest part of steak reads 135°F (for medium). Transfer steak to cutting board; tent with foil, and let stand 5 minutes.
  • 4
    Meanwhile, in grill pan, cook pepper and onion mixture 5 to 7 minutes, stirring occasionally, until vegetables are crisp-tender and browned.
  • 5
    Cut steak across grain at angle into thin slices. To serve, place beef and vegetables down center of warmed tortillas. Top with remaining ingredients.

Expert Tips

  • Flank steak varies in thickness. For best doneness results, select a cut that is even thickness.
