Easy Carne thanks to Safeway

The plan was to get either a flank steak or a tri tip to go with grilled veggies and Guacamole.  When neither were available, I started to panic and dig thru the caverns of the meat counter looking for anything to suffice
What I found and took a chance on was simply called Carne Asada
It looked and smelled pretty good, and was well seasoned
I started by getting some veggies going
Then went with the meat
While the meat was resting, I toasted off some tortillas-  It's pretty cool how they sometimes puff up on the egg
Meat got a fine chop after resting.  It was already thin and was fork tender
I normally do not subscribe to pre packaged and seasoned meat.  In this situation it worked out really well.  Seasoning was really quite good.  A little different than I would have done but good nonetheless.  The meal was really so easy, it would be a crowd pleaser at a tailgate or on a camping trip.  But then again, what isn't a crowd pleaser when it's done on the Egg?

Here is a more detailed story about the cook-

Thanks for looking!

    I am not sure what the traditional cut is, but this one was a sirloin flap- A new favorite

    This carne asada looks wonderful and is probably skirt steak by the way it looks. I may run by Safeway and get some of this to try, I'm salivating. Uh. my bad the package reads thinly sliced sirloin.

    Looks great! My local grocery store has something like this every so often and I usually grab one when I see it. Nicely done =D>

    @EggRacer  I had to take a second glance to make sure I had it correct.  The first ingredient is Sirloin Flap.  Not something I was familiar with but after a google search, it is a quite coveted cut of meat.  The flap is something I will be keeping an eye out for more in the future.
