I made this tonight for my meat-loving husband, who said it was quite delicious! It rates highly with me for being so easy to put together; I love that you can get fun, tropical flavor with everyday ingredients. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT 9, Gourmet Goddesses.

  1. Smash and peel garlic and place in a mortar; sprinkle with salt and let sit for 5 minutes to soften the garlic.
  2. Use the pestle to form the garlic and salt to a paste; in a small bowl, combine the garlic paste, oregano, cumin, pepper, lime juice and orange juice.
  3. Place the steaks in a single layer in a baking dish; pour the marinade over and let sit about 20 minutes.
  4. Heat a skillet over high heat, add oil, and cook the onions and peppers, while stirring, until softened, anout 2 minutes; remove to a bowl.
  5. Place steaks into the skillet and cook for 2 minutes, then flip and cook another 2 minutes.
  6. You will probably have to do this in two batches.
  7. Return the onions and peppers, along with the steaks, to the skillet, cover, and cook another minute.
  8. Place steaks on a serving plate covered with the onions and peppers.
  9. If desired, you can cook the marinade for a couple of minutes and spoon that over the steaks.
