  1. In a large baking dish or zip-top plastic bag, mix together all of the ingredients for the marinade. Add the flank steak, turn to evenly coat the steak in the marinade, and place in the refrigerator to marinate for 2 hours.
  2. While the steak is marinating, make the Pico de Gallo.
  3. After 2 hours, remove the steak from the refrigerator and allow it to come to room temperature. Meanwhile, preheat a grill to mediumhigh heat. Grill the steak for about 4–5 minutes per side for medium-rare doneness, or until the desired internal temperature is reached.
  4. Allow the steak to rest for 5 minutes after cooking, then thinly slice it against the grain. Serve with some Pico de Gallo and garnish with avocado slices, if desired.


The seeds of the jalapeño contribute piquancy. If you prefer a spicier dish, leave some of the seeds in.
