Marinade the steak for at least a couple of hours or overnight in a large ziplock bag.
To make the crema, combine sour cream, heavy cream, and salt in a small bowl and whisk to combine.
Combine salsa ingredients in a small bowl and let sit while you cook the steak.
Cut the onions into ¼" rings. Combine olive oil, granulated garlic, salt and pepper in a small bowl and brush the mixture on the onions on both sides.
Turn your grill to medium high heat and let get hot for 30 minutes. Grill the steak and onions until steak is medium rare, about 3-5 minutes per side and onions are lightly charred. Let steak rest for 10 minutes.
Toast the tortillas on the grill, until lightly browned.
Slice the steak, across the grain, in thin strips. To assembler tacos, place a few pieces of meat on a toasted tortilla. Top with 2 Tbs. cheese, grilled onions, salsa, crema, and cilantro leaves. DEVOUR!
