Black Tuxedo Steak Nachos

Serves 4

Cook Time 20 Minutes

Prep Time 20 Minutes

For the nachos

  • 1 1/2 pounds flank steak
  • 4 tablespoons Black Tuxedo Rub
  • 8 ounces grated Monterey jack cheese
  • 12 ounces corn tortilla chips

Optional but highly recommended toppings

  • 2 roma tomatoes , seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 small white onion, finely chopped
  • 1 bunch green onions, roughly chopped
  • 1 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
  • Pickled jalapeno slices
  • Mexican table cream, aka Crema

Season the flank steak all over with Black Tuxedo seasoning. Rub the steak with the Black Tuxedo and allow it to rest on the steak for a few hours in the fridge. 


Take the steak out of the fridge and let sit, uncovered, for 30 minutes. While that is happening, light your grill and put on medium-high, direct heat (approximately 450 degrees F). 


Place steak on the grill and cook, flipping a few times during the cook, until internal temperature hits 124°F (steak will rise when resting to 128°F/130°F making it medium-rare).


Place on a cutting board and let rest at least 10 minutes before slicing across the grain and then into smaller bite-sized pieces. 


Build the nachos on a sheet pan covered with foil. Spread the chips out into a thin layer and top with half of the cheese, followed by the steak, tomato, green onion, white onions, and the remaining cheese. Set the nacho pan on the grill and cook for 6 to 8 minutes or until the cheese is just beginning to brown. 


Remove from the grill and top with cilantro, pickled peppers, and a few spoonfuls of creme before absolutely devouring.
