Keto Grilled Steak Tacos Inspiration

In California, we have access to some of the best carne asada you could ever imagine! Inspired by the amazing tacos I’ve had, I wanted to create my own version! And so we have my newest recipe, Keto Grilled Steak Tacos! This super easy recipe keeps you out of your hot kitchen and is done on the barbeque in 15 min! I personally love the way these taste grilled on our charcoal grill, but check out the recipe notes below for other cooking options.

Taco Tips & Tricks

For these Keto Grilled Steak Tacos, I simply grill my steak 5 min per side. I use Flat Iron steak from Belcampo because it’s so thin it cooks really fast. After you’re done grilling, let it rest 5 min, then serve! I serve my tacos on jicama wraps that you can get from Trader Joe’s, Sprouts, or Costco. I bring them to room temperature and they are *so* yummy and give that same crunch as a taco shell! The great thing is, you can mix things up with your favorite keto tortilla or butter lettuce as the shell. Sprinkle with some chopped onions and cilantro, squeeze some lime and that’s it!

Keto Grilled Steak Tacos

  • Author: Natalie
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Cook Time: 10 minutes
  • Total Time: 15 minutes
  • Yield: 2-3 1x



Spice Rub


  • 1 pound flat iron steak (I get my pasture raised organic flat iron steak from Belcampo, code TASTESLOVELY20 for 20% off)
  • 2 tablespoons avocado oil


  • jicama wraps
  • sliced avocado
  • chopped white onion
  • finely chopped cilantro
  • wedges of lime


  1. Light your charcoals in your grill and allow to warm for 10 minutes. Clean the grill grates if necessary. (See notes for stove top or gas grill)
  2. While the grill is heating up, pat the flat iron steak dry with paper towels. Drizzle each side of the steak with avocado oil and the seasoning. Use your hands to rub it in. Will make a paste.
  3. When the grill is hot, add on the steaks. Cook for about 5 minutes per side (until the steak has an internal temperature of 125ºF for medium rare). Transfer to a cutting board and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
  4. Thinly slice the steak against the grain.
  5. Serve warm on jicama wraps (or favorite keto taco shell) with sliced avocado, white onion, cilantro and lime.
  6. Leftover steak will keep in an airtight container refrigerated for at least 5 days, or frozen for at least 6 months.
  7. As always, lots of tips, FAQs and substitution info below in the Recipe Notes!


Steak: Flat iron steak is my very favorite for this. I get it from Belcampo (code TASTESLOVELY20 for 20% off!). You could also use a skirt steak. Or thicker steak like ribeye or New Yorks, they will just take a few minutes longer per side to cook since they’re thicker.

Spice Rub: This spice rub isn’t spicy at all. My kids will eat it. This blend is my favorite steak blend. If you like it spicier, you could add in cayenne pepper to taste. Or top with jalapenos!

Stove Top Cooking: This would work in a cast iron skillet as well! Heat your cast iron skillet over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add in 1 tablespoon avocado oil and cook for about 5 minutes per side. Follow the rest of the recipe as outlined above.

Gas Grill Cooking: Heat your gas grill over medium high heat for 5 minutes. Also cook for 5 minutes per side and follow the recipe as outlined above.

Taco Toppings: My go to keto friendly taco shell is jicama wraps. I can get at Trader Joes, Sprouts, Whole Foods, even Costco! But feel free to use your favorite. Butter lettuce or romaine lettuce works too!

Nutrition Facts: The nutritional information is calculated based on the exact ingredients and quantities listed in the Ingredients above. It is just for steak with avocado oil and spice rub since taco toppings and taco shell used can vary. It is provided as a courtesy only and should be construed as an estimate rather than a guarantee. Ingredients can vary, especially if you make recipe substitutions. Always best to go off your own calculations based on the ingredients and measurements you use.
