Flank steak tacos with spicy slaw

Tacos are such a fun and quick summer meal. And there are countless variations so they never get boring.

This version uses grilled flank steak with a spice rub. Get that on the grill while you prepare the rest of the ingredients, and by the time the meat is cooked and rested, you’re ready to eat.

The tacos get topped with a spicy slaw that combines cabbage with grilled onions and jalapeño peppers and a lime vinaigrette. (I cheated a bit by simply sautéing sliced red onion and chopped jalapeño.) Finish with a dollop of sour cream and a squeeze of lime juice.

Finally, it’s worth mentioning that corn tortillas are way better than flour tortillas, so go out of your way to find them. I got chipotle-flavoured tortillas to match the spice and smokiness of the steak.
