Ingredients

  • 2 lbs. Flank Steak

  • ¼ cup fresh lime juice

  • ½ cup fresh orange juice, about 2 oranges

  • ½ cup olive oil

  • 2 Tbsp. red wine vinegar

  • 2 tsp. salt

  • 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

  • 1 tsp. ground cumin

  • 1 tsp. oregano

  • 4 garlic cloves, minced

Preparation

  1. Preheat gas or charcoal grill to 400°F.

  2. In a medium-sized bowl, whisk together lime juice, orange juice, olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, cumin, oregano and garlic. Pour into a 9×12-inch baking dish.

  3. Add flank steak. Turn to coat both sides in marinade. Cover with plastic wrap and place in fridge to marinate for up to 4 hours. Remove meat and discard marinade.

  4. Place steaks on oiled grates and grill steaks 8-10 minutes on one side or until moisture starts to pool on the top and beef releases easily from grates with tongs. Flip once, grilling on the other side for 8-10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 135°F with meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the steak.

  5. Transfer steaks to a platter and let rest for 5-10 minutes before slicing against the grain.

Suggestions

Serve with rice, beans, guacamole and tortillas.
