Marinated Grilled Steak Tacos

Hi friends!

It’s been a while…I miss you all!  Been busy, but glad to be back.  I have a yummy recipe to share with you today: Marinated Grilled Steak Tacos!  It’s one of our favorite meals to make on the grill in the summer.  You can really make this recipe your own by adding toppings you enjoy!  Like some heat…add jalapenos!  Want a healthier version?  Skip the guacamole and sour cream.  You can even try this recipe with chicken.

Marinated Grilled Steak Tacos

Taco Ingredients:

  • 8 oz thin cut boneless steak
  • marinade (see recipe below)
  • corn tortillas
  • Monterey Jack cheese, grated
  • 2 Roma tomatoes, diced
  • 1/4 to 1/2 cup onions, diced
  • 4 sprigs of cilantro, chopped
  • guacamole – find my recipe here
  • sour cream (optional)
  • hot sauce (optional)

Marinade Ingredients: (adapted from recipe, source unknown)

  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
  • juice of 2 limes
  • 2 cloves of garlic, pressed or minced
  • 2 tsp steak seasoning


Prepare marinade in a gallon size resealable bag.  Place steak in bag and seal.  Marinade in the refrigerator for at least 4 hours, turning over halfway through.  Save time and marinade overnight, it will be ready for the grill when you get home from work!

Combine tomatoes, onions and cilantro in glass dish and set aside (feel free to alter the ratio to your liking).  Prepare guacamole and set aside.  Grill marinated steak to your liking.  Rest grilled meat under foil tent for 5 minutes, allowing the juices to re-distribute before cutting.  Thinly slice steak across the grain.  Warm corn tortillas in skillet on stove top or warm on the grill.  Add meat, cheese, pico de gallo, guacamole and sour cream to warm tortilla.  Enjoy!

Makes 8 tacos.

Here are my hubby’s tacos with all the yummy guacamole and sour cream piled on!  He sure knows how to build a taco!
