Tajin seasoning can be found in most grocery stores.  If you are unable to find it, you can make your own by combining chili powder, lime zest and salt.
Cook meat to desired temperature:
  • with a thermometer, rare = 115°, medium = 140°, well-done = 155°
  • if you do not have a meat thermometer, rare = touch of your chin, medium = touch of your nose, well-done = touch of your forehead
