2 tbsp. Buzzrocks Original Jerk Marinade

1tsp. Buzzrocks All-Purpose Seasoning

2 tbsp. canola oil, divided 

1 1/2 lb. flank or skirt steak

1 diced pineapple 

1 diced onion 

1/4 freshly chopped cilantro 

Juice of ½ lime, plus lime wedges for serving

Crumbled cotija cheese, for serving (optional) 


Marinate the Steak:

Pour the Jerk Marinade into a large resealable plastic bag and add steak. Press out as much air as you can and seal.

Shake to coat the steak in the marinade, then chill for 1 hour.

Cook the steak:

In a large skillet over medium-high heat, add remaining 2 tablespoons oil.

Add steak and cook until nicely seared but slightly pink in center, 6 to 8 minutes per side.

Season gently with salt and pepper.

Remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes. 

Finishing Touches:

In a small bowl, stir together pineapple, onion, cilantro, lime juice and all-purpose seasoning to make a pineapple salsa.

Thinly slice steak across the grain.

 Pack steak into tortillas and add pineapple salsa and avocado.

Top with cotija cheese if desired and serve with lime slices.
