Best on the grill, but works great under the broiler or in a saute pan.

"Delish!!! Only marinated for 5 hours and turned out amazing on the grill. Love the flavors infused and enjoyed as much as the restaurant, if not more! Hubby loves them and would definitely make again! "

Ingredients

Are you making this? 
Marinade:
1/2 cup vegetable oil
1/2 cup fresh lime juice; about 4 limes
1/3 cup fresh orange juice; about 1 orange
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
4 cloves garlic; minced
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 1/4 teaspoons ground cumin
3/4 teaspoons salt
3/4 teaspoons ground black pepper
To finish the dish:
1 1/4 pound chuck steaks; trimmed, or skirt steak

Original recipe makes 4 Servings

Servings  

Preparation

1. Combine all of the marinade ingredients in a ziploc bag.

2. Pound the steaks to 1/2-inch thickness. Add the steaks to the marinade. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 2 hours and up to 12 hours, turning occasionally to ensure even distribution.

3. Discard the marinade. Grill the steaks over indirect heat for 15 minutes, flip, and continue to cook for another 15 minutes, until the steak is well done yet still tender. Let rest for 5 minutes. Chop the meat into little bits. Serve with warm tortillas, salsas, and grilled onions.

**Alternately, broil the steak for 10 minutes each side, or saute over medium high heat for 10 minutes each side.

Notes

Use a handful of mesquite wood chips for an authentic flavor. Don't use too many, as they can have a strong flavor.

I used flank steak, cooked to rare and sliced thin. Yum!

This has earned a place in our favorites. Next time I'll make sure to marinate for the whole overnight to make sure the flavors really meld together and help tenderize the cheaper cut off meat.
