3. To bowl with reserved oil mixture, add onion, bell pepper and jalapeño; toss to coat.

4. Arrange one oven rack in upper third and another rack in lower third of oven. Preheat broiler to high. Place a large baking sheet on upper rack. When hot, remove steak from marinade and place on sheet, discarding marinade. Broil 4 minutes, flip, and broil 3 to 5 minutes more, to desired doneness. Transfer to a plate and tent with foil; rest 10 minutes. Wipe sheet and return to oven.

5. Wrap tortillas in foil. Place on lower oven rack to warm. Spread vegetable strips on hot baking sheet; broil 5 to 7 minutes, stirring once, until softened. Slice steak into strips. Divide steak and vegetables among plates; serve with tortillas and crema.
