Beef Fajitas with Salsa

From Dorothy McNett's recipes at Perfect with any homemade salsa.

1 pound skirt or flank steak
zest of 1 lemon
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 teaspoon cumin
1/2 teaspoon sea salt
1/8 teaspoon cayenne or other spicy meat rub
1/4 cup plain yogurt, or sour cream, or creme fraiche
4 flour tortillas
3/4 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
fresh salsa
1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro
1 tomato, cut into small pieces

Trim off any fat from steak. About 15 minutes before cooking, rub steak with lime juice, cumin, salt, and cayenne. Prepare a hot fire in a grill or preheat a stove-top grill. Set steak about 4 inches from the heat, or on the grill pan, and cook just until browned on outside but still pink inside. Let meat rest for 5 minutes before carving across the grain on the diagonal into thin slices. Spread 1 tablespoon yogurt over each tortilla. Arrange one fourth of steak slices in center of each tortilla, top each with lettuce and salsa. Add cilantro and fresh tomato. Roll up and enjoy.
