A cool avocado salsa complements hot slices of marinated beef.
Updated Jan 27, 2010

Ingredients

  • 2 medium limes
  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
  • 1 lb beef flank steak, trimmed of fat
  • 1 cup chopped plum (Roma) tomatoes (about 2 medium)
  • 1/4 cup chopped red onion
  • 1 avocado, pitted, peeled and chopped
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 8 white corn tortillas (6 inch)

Steps

  • 1
    Squeeze limes into measuring cup; reserve 1 tablespoon juice for the salsa. In heavy-duty resealable food-storage plastic bag, mix remaining lime juice (about 1/4 cup), the cumin, 1/4 teaspoon salt, the pepper and garlic. Add beef; seal bag and turn to coat beef. Refrigerate 1 hour to marinate, turning occasionally.

    Meanwhile, in medium bowl, mix tomatoes, onion, avocado, reserved 1 tablespoon lime juice and 1/8 teaspoon salt; toss to coat.
  • 3
    Set oven control to broil. Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade. Place beef on rack in broiler pan. Broil with top 4 to 6 inches from heat 10 to 15 minutes or until desired doneness, turning once. Let stand 5 minutes. Cut diagonally across grain into very thin slices.
  • 4
    Warm tortillas as directed on package. Divide steak strips among tortillas; top each with about 1/4 cup avocado salsa; fold in half.

Tips from the Betty Crocker Kitchens

  • tip 1
    Sour cream and guacamole also make tasty toppers.
  • tip 2
    Flank steak is a less tender cut of beef with really great flavor. Because it is less tender, it usually requires marinating.
