Very good! The flank steak was tender and juicy, and I really liked the addition of charred corn. I don't much care for fajitas, so I made 6 mini burritos instead. I also used pico de gallo instead of heirloom tomatoes. I cooked everything on the stove and in the broiler because I don't have a grill, but it worked well for me. [Made & Reviewed for PRMR]
