Cilantro-Marinated Flank Steak Taco Recipe

How to make the best cilantro marinade recipe for steak tacos! This healthy, low carb, keto & paleo recipe is also gluten free and makes the best carne asada. Can be used with corn or flour tortillas.

Cilantro is one of those things that people either love or hate. I've read before that it's genetic, and that would explain its polarizing nature.

I personally love cilantro, and I am always trying to grow it but find it to be a terrible windowsill and even garden plant. I rarely have any luck with it; I plant it constantly but never get any harvest.

Fortunately for me, the grocery store sells bunches of cilantro for cheap, and they taste great.

This amazing recipe from The Rootsy Network satisfies my love of cilantro in a big way, and it is perfect for winter suppers to remind you of summer flavors, and it's also perfect for grilling out poolside in warmer weather.

Instructions
  1. In a food processor, combine the cilantro, olive oil, garlic, lime juice, and salt. Grind until almost smooth.
  2. Place the flank steak in a plastic bag and rub the cilantro mixture all over both sides.
  3. Refrigerate the meat for at least an hour and up to 24 hours. The longer it sits, the stronger the flavor.
  4. When ready to cook, place the flank steak with the cilantro paste still on the meat onto a broiler pan.
  5. Place the broiler pan about 6 inches from the heat and broil under high heat. For medium-rare about 5 minutes, then flip and broil another 5 minutes.
  6. Remove from the broiler and let the meat rest 10 minutes before slicing.
  7. Serve with tortillas, cheese, sour cream, lettuce, tomatoes, and onions for an easy taco buffet.
