  • Heat grill to high; lightly oil grates. Place steak on grill (fold thin end over so steak is an even thickness); cover. Cook, turning once, until meat is desired doneness, 4 to 6 minutes for medium-rare.

Great Idea with the tortillas! I used a flank steak, and it was just as delicious! The seasoning was just the right amount and not spicy in the least! I just placed the steak in the seasoning so I could coat it evenly, and that wsa the right amount. I also used the skillet, and got it a perfect medium rare! Everyone should try this easy one!
