Carne Asada Lettuce Wraps

These were so so good! Oh my gosh, best dinner we've made in a while! We also cooked together tonight which I always love. Our menu plan got thrown off and so I asked Nate to come up for an idea for dinner tonight. So Nate sent me this link and I thought it looked like a winner. We definitely plan on making these again and again. Enjoy!

1 1/2 lbs. flank steak
1/4 cup oil
juice of 2 limes
2 Tbsp. coarse chopped garlic
1 Tbsp. chopped cilantro
1/2 tsp. cumin
1 1/2 tsp. kosher salt
1 tsp. black pepper
8-10 lettuce leaves (we used romaine hearts)
Mexican rice

Combine oil, lime juice, garlic, cilantro, cumin, salt, and pepper in a gallon size ziploc bag. Zip and shake to mix. Add meat. Refrigerate and let marinate for 1-4 hours. Remove steak from marinade and grill to desired doneness. Let rest for 5 minutes and then slice across the grain into thin strips. Spread a little bit of Mexican rice on to each lettuce leaf and then top with some steak slices. Garnish with whatever you'd like, shredded cheese, diced onion, hot sauce etc. Enjoy!
