  • 1 beef Top Round Steak, 1 inch thick (about 1-3/4 pounds)

Marinade:

  • 2/3 cup frozen orange juice concentrate, defrosted

  • 1/2 cup tequila

  • 1/3 cup fresh lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 2 teaspoons minced garlic

  • 1 teaspoon salt

  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano leaves

  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

  • 2 to 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

Preparation

  1. Combine marinade ingredients in medium bowl. Place beef steak and marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.

  2. To make Orange Salsa: Combine all salsa ingredients in non-metallic bowl. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour.

  3. Remove steak; discard marinade. Pat steak dry with paper towel. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 10 to 11 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 10 to 11 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Do not overcook. Carve into thin slices. Serve with orange salsa.
