Better than restaurant quality flavor. Tender, juicy and it still had that wonderful beef flavor.

This was really a fun way to serve flank steak. The salsa was really good. I used regular salsa instead of the verde and that too worked fine. I grilled the sliced sweet potatoes, and it did look nice.

I need to make this again. I didn't let it marinate long enough and the meet was a little tough. But the salsa on top was fantastic!
