Jerk Steak Tacos


This sounded pretty good so I tried it tonight. I couldn't grill the steak because it was FREEZING and snowing and I decided just to cook it inside instead. I'm sure it would have been better grilled.  These had a great flavor. I don't know if I would make it a lot but it was a good and fairly healthy meal!

Ingredients:
4 green onions, chopped
1 garlic clove
1 jalepeno pepper, seeded
1 tbls ground allspice
1 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/2 tsp ground red pepper
2 tbls lime juice
1 to 1.5 lbs flank steak
1 bunch green onions
4 large tomatos
vegetable cooking spray
1/4 tsp salt
8 flour tortillas

Process first 8 ingredients in a blender or food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down sides.  Spread seasoning mixture evenly over steak.  Cover and chill 8 hours.

Grill steak, covered with grill lid, over medium high heat 6-7 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness.  Let stand 10 min.  Cute into thin slices.

Coat 1 bunch green onions and tomatoes evenly with cooking spray, sprinkle with salt.

Grill, covered, over medium heat 10-15 minutes, turning occasionally.  Coarsely chop vegetables.  Serve with steak in warm tortillas.
