Scott’s specialty…

The best gift I ever got my husband was a Big Green Egg.  He loves that thing more than anything.  And l love him cooking on it, so it was a total win-win. Anyway, he’s become quite the aficionado, but his flank steak tacos are by far his best.  Just ask the neighbors about our bi-annual street cookout.  It’s a favorite! The salsa and steak is so flavorful.  The kids and I love it, even without the corn tortilla on ours.

Flank Steak Tacos with Mango Salsa

2 lbs bison flank steak (Whole Foods has a good array of flank steak)

Put in a bag and marinate (for at least 1 hour). Add 1 tbsp chopped garlic, some sherry cooking wine (about 1/4 cup), juice from 2 limes, some olive oil (about 1/4 cup), and 1 tsp Celtic or Himalayan sea salt. Sorry for all the “about”s, but this is my husband’s recipe after all.

Grill it by searing it on each side for 3-4 minutes. You can always cook this on the stove too if you aren’t up for grilling. I know I never am!

For the salsa, cut up a fresh mango (buy a few days before you actually need it so it will have time to ripen), purple onion, cilantro, and squeeze juice from 1 lime.

Optional: put on a corn tortilla, if you wish, and add avocado, tomatoes, cheese (if desired). Scott usually grills his corn tortillas with cheese on them.  Enjoy!
