Grilled Steak and Spinach Tacos

This is a perfect summer meal because you can eat it with the steak at more room temperature than straight off the grill (but eat it however you like).  That makes if not feel like such a heavy meal.  The pepper jack cheese adds just the right amount of spice and the tomatoes keep it cool!  Just a few basic ingredients for a delicious dinner.

Ingredients:
  • 1 1/2 pounds of Flank Steak
  • 1 1/2  Tablespoons Montreal Steak Seasoning
  • 3 Tablespoons Olive Oil
  • 1 teaspoon of Worcestershire Sauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon of minced garlic
  • 8-10 Flour Tortillas (taco size)
  • 12 Sliced Cherry Tomatoes
  • About 5 Cups of Baby Spinach (1 6 oz bag)
  • 1 1/2 Cups of Shredded Pepper Jack Cheese
  • Diced Red Onion (optional)
Serves 4-5 (two tacos each)

In a ziploc bag combine olive oil, Montreal steak seasoning, and minced garlic.  Add meat and marinate for about an hour.  Grill steak to desired temperature.  Let rest (uncovered- it's ok for the steak to cool a bit) for about 5 minutes, then cut in to strips.  Layer a handful of baby spinach on the tortilla, add steak strips, pepper jack cheese, slice tomatoes, and red onion (optional).  And there you go a PERFECT summer dinner!
