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
image
What I found and took a chance on was simply called Carne Asada
image
It looked and smelled pretty good, and was well seasoned
image
I started by getting some veggies going
image
Then went with the meat
image
While the meat was resting, I toasted off some tortillas-  It's pretty cool how they sometimes puff up on the egg
image
Meat got a fine chop after resting.  It was already thin and was fork tender
image
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!

    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.

    @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.
