Ingredients

  • 4 garlic cloves peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeno seeded and chopped
  • Juice from 2 limes
  • Juice from 1 orange
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • Pinch of salt
  • Few grinds of fresh cracked pepper
  • Skirt or flank steak

Instructions

  1. Place all the ingredients except the steak in a blender. Blend on high until combined. Place the steak in a large plastic zip top bag. Pour the marinade from the blender into the bag. Seal the bag and place in the refrigerator. Allow steak to marinate for at least 2 hours or overnight.
  2. Remove the steak from the refrigerator and allow it to get to room temperature (about 1 hour). Heat a grill to medium-high heat. Remove the steak from the marinade and grill the steak a few minutes on each side to desired doneness. Discard marinade. Transfer steak to a serving platter, cover, and let rest for 10 to 15 minutes. Serve and enjoy.
