  • 2 boneless beef chuck shoulder steaks, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 1-1/2 pounds)

  • 2/3 cup prepared Italian dressing
  • 2 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon chili powder
  • thinly sliced lettuce

Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl. Place beef steaks and marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.

Remove steaks; discard marinade. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 12 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.

Carve into thin slices; season with salt. Serve in tortillas with toppings.
