INGREDIENTS
  • 2 lbs. flank steak, trimmed

  • 2 Tbsp. olive oil

  • 3 Tbsp. fresh garlic, minced
  • Kosher salt and fresh ground black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup good tequila (I use Sauza Hornitos)
DIRECTIONS
  1. Rub the Chipotle Paste on both sides of the flank steak and allow to sit at room temperature for one hour, or refrigerated up to 24 hours.
  2. Grill the flank steak until medium rare to medium (130° to 140° F. internal temperature) and allow to rest for ten minutes.
  3. While the steak is resting, heat the olive oil in a large sauté pan and add the onions. Sauté until just beginning to brown.
  4. Add the peppers and garlic and season with salt and pepper.
  5. Sauté until the peppers are done and also beginning to brown.
  6. Deglaze with the tequila and cook until the alcohol is gone, around 3 minutes.
  7. After your flank steak has rested, slice the steak thinly against the grain on a 45 degree bias.
  8. Pour the peppers and onions onto a large platter and lay the sliced flank steak over the top.
