Your Turn To Create

  • Place the steak in a large freezer bag and set aside.
  • In a blender, combine the olive oil, apple cider vinegar, lime juice, garlic, cilantro and salt and pepper, to taste, and blend until mostly smooth.
  • Reserve ¼ cup of the marinade and pour the remaining marinade into the bag with the steak. Refrigerate for 3 to 4 hours.
  • Heat an outdoor grill or indoor grill pan over medium-high heat.
  • Lightly grease the grill with vegetable oil, then place the steak on the grill and cook until medium-rare, about 6 minutes per side. (For ideal doneness, use a thermometer and cook to 130 to 140°F for medium.)
  • Remove from the heat, cover and rest for 10 minutes.
  • While the steak is resting, wrap the tortillas in foil and heat on the grill until warmed through, 3 to 5 minutes. Remove from the heat and set aside.
  • Thinly slice steak against the grain.
  • To assemble the tacos, lay a couple of slices of steak onto a warm corn tortilla and drizzle with the reserved marinade. Top with the red onion, cilantro, a squeeze of lime and Boursin Cheese.
