Step 1Soak twelve 10 or 12-inch wooden skewers in enough water to cover 10 minutes; drain.
Step 2Place garlic in blender container. Cover; process, pulsing on and off, until garlic is finely chopped. Add remaining marinade ingredients; process until mixture is blended.
Step 3Cut beef Flank Steak diagonally across the grain into 1/4-inch thick strips. In medium bowl, combine beef and marinade; toss to coat. Marinate 10 minutes.
Step 4Thread an equal amount of beef, weaving back and forth, onto each skewer. Place beef on grid over medium ash-covered coals; grill, covered, 4 to 6 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning once. Season with salt, as desired. Garnish with lime and cilantro sprigs, if desired.
