Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Whisk oil, lime juice, garlic, cumin, chili powder, jalapenos, and cilantro together in a small bowl.
  2. Pace the meat in a zip lock bag pour the marinade over the meat cover and refrigerate for at least one hour but I do it over night.
  3. Light the grill.
  4. Generously sprinkle both sides of the steak with salt to taste.
  5. Scrape the hot grill surface clean.
  6. Grill the steak, turning once, until done the way you like it, 8 to 10 minutes for medium rare.
  7. Transfer steak to platter and carve, cutting meat into thin slices across the grain.

This is a great recipe; thank you for posting. It was quick and easy to put together and my DH and I really enjoyed the flavor and subtle heat (I used two jalapeno peppers) that it gave the steak.

This is a wonderful recipe. Great flavor combination. We allowed to marinate about 4 hours and loved it. Would be fabulous in fajita's.
