The rub for the steak is both sweet and spicy—use it on any grilled protein, and be generous, as some of it comes off on the grill. Out of season, look for grapefruit segments in the refrigerated case.  

  1. In a bowl, combine 3 tablespoons of the oil, cumin, chili powder, onion powder, brown sugar, and pinch of salt. Spread mixture onto steak, using hands to ensure steak is thoroughly coated.
  2. Brush poblano, bell pepper, romaine heart, and green onions with remaining 1 tablespoon oil. For a charcoal grill or gas grill, place poblano, bell pepper, and green onions on the greased rack directly over medium heat; cover and grill until tender (about 10 minutes for poblano and bell pepper, turning once, and about 1 minute for green onions). Cool; then thinly slice all the vegetables. Place romaine and lime halves, cut side down, on the grate and grill 2 minutes, or until grill marks form. Cool; then chop romaine. Cut lime halves into wedges.
  3. Meanwhile, place steak on the greased rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals and grill to desired doneness, turning once. Allow 10–12 minutes for medium rare (145°F) or 12–15 minutes for medium (160°F). Rest steaks on a clean platter, loosely covered with foil, for 10 minutes.
  4. To make Citrus Slaw, in a bowl, gently toss together the mandarin orange, grapefruit, red onion, salt, and cilantro.
  5. Thinly slice steak; serve in warm tortillas with grilled vegetables, lime wedges, and Citrus Slaw.
