Ingredients:  
1 (1 1/2 lb.) flank steak
3 T. vegetable oil
2 bell peppers, cored and sliced thin
1 red onion, sliced thin
2 T. water
1 t. chili powder
12 (6-inch) flour tortillas
2 T. fresh lime juice
1 T. minced fresh cilantro

Directions:
Directions:
Pat steak dry with paper towels, then season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 T. of oil in 12-inch skillet over medium-high heat until just smoking. Brown the steak on the first side, about 5 minutes, reducing heat if pan begins to scorch. Flip steak over and continue to cook to desired doneness, 3 to 6 min. Transfer steak to clean plate, tent with foil, and let rest for 5 to 10 min. before slicing. While steak rests, add 1 more T. of oil to skillet and return to medium heat until shimmering. Add bell peppers, onion, water, chili powder, and 1/2 t. salt and cook until onion is softened, about 5 min. Transfer to serving bowl. Stack tortillas on plate and cover with plastic wrap. Heat in microwave until soft and hot, 30 seconds to 2 min. Mix remaining 1 T. of oil, lime juice, cilantro, Worcestershire, brown sugar, and 1/4 t. salt together in large bowl and set aside. Slice steak very thin across the grain and toss with marinade. Serve.

Another 30 min. recipe that is super simple. The hardest part for me is slicing the meat :-) The marinade really brightens up the meat flavor! Our flank steaks have all needed to cook longer the time given to come out medium.
