My family has enjoyed burrito bowls for dinner. I wanted to incorporate the grilling season and came up with this easy grilled steak burrito bowl. I have a set amount of ingredients that we used but feel free to change it up to what your family likes.
It all begins with the steak. It gets a good soaking in a flavorful marnate before it hits the grill. it has olive oil, soy sauce, lime juice, vinegar, sugar, salt, pepper, cumin, garlic, and cilantro. A good marinade has some type of acid in it. That is what helps break down the fibers in the meat to make them tender,. This marinade has both vinegar and lime juice.
We are also using a flank steak for this. Flank steak is perfect for marinating. It also cooks fast on the grill. It only takes about 5 minutes for side. Cook time will depend on how well done you like your steak. We like it to be medium to medium well.
Nest in this burrito bowl is a base of rice. I used just regular stamed rice. However, cilantro lime or any other kind of Mexican flavored rice will work. Heck, you could use another grain like quinoa if you prefer.
Last is the topping for the bowl. We used shredded cheese, salsa, roasted corn, pinto beans, guacamole, and ranch dressing. However, feel free to use whatever you like or prefer.
