In a large bowl, whisk together all of the ingredients for the marinade.
Place the steak in a large plastic zipper bag. Pour the marinade over the beef, seal the bag and shake to evenly distribute the marinade. Refrigerate for at least 1 hour, or up to 8 hours.
Heat a grill or a large grill pan over high heat. Brush with oil to prevent sticking. Remove the steak from the marinade and cook on the grill for 5 to 8 minutes on each side (depending on your preferred doneness), flipping once. Transfer steak to a cutting board and allow to rest for 5 minutes.
Warm corn tortillas in a dry pan over medium-high heat for 30 to 60 seconds each side, turning once, until softened slightly. Wrap the toasted tortillas in foil to keep warm.
Thinly slice the steak diagonally against the grain, then chop for smaller bites, if desired. Serve the steak on the warm tortillas with onion, avocado, sour cream, cotija cheese, cilantro leaves or your choice of toppings.
