Are you looking for lightning-fast finger food and the chance to wow tailgaters and family? These cilantro steak tacos have everything you want, plus the opportunity to use your Kong at super-hot temps.
You can also add personalization to your pitmaster performance when you make this steak taco recipe. For instance, why not mix up the spices with some paprika, Mexican oregano or onion powder? Part of the fun of whipping up these cilantro lime steak tacos is bringing new character to the ingredients.
What’s a Flap Steak?
Speaking of ingredients, you may be new to a flap steak. It’s a thin, tender cut of meat straight from the steer’s stomach area. You might have to ask your favorite butcher for flap steak because it’s not a cut you can find in most groceries’ meat sections.
If you can’t find a flap steak, you can try a few alternatives. Flank steak or skirt steak can give you a similar finish as well as finely sliced beef tenderloin.
Benefits of a Kong Diffuser
This cilantro lime steak taco recipe involves heavy use of the Kong diffuser. When you’re working with a kamado-style grill, a diffuser comes in handy. It allows you to rely on indirect heat to warm up delicate items such as tortillas while you’re flame-grilling meats, veggies or whatever else you’re cooking.
Sauce Add-Ons to Rock Your Tacos
These tacos don’t necessarily need anything more than a squeeze of fresh lime to give them moistness and pep. While a cilantro lime steak marinade gives these tacos plenty of flavor, you can always slather them in anything from chunky veggie or fruit salsas to a south-of-the-border inspired buttermilk dressing.
If you want a little produce nestled in your lime steak tacos alongside the meat, grill up some thin strips of zucchini, mushrooms and bits of onion. It’s a fiesta for any day!
