    Sharlene~W's Note:

    The flank is not the tenderest cut of beef, but it may be the most flavorful. To make it tenderer, I marinate it and slice it against the grain very thin on the bias after cooking it. So what you start with is very thin steak, and what you end up with is large thin slices of char-flavored meat that resembles roast beef. The acid in the lime marinade is very complementary to the char flavor of the meet. Marinated it anywhere from 4 to 6 hours: Any longer than that, and the lime juice will actually cook the steak, leaving you with gray meat. Recipe adapted from Chris Schlesinger Adopted 9/06

      Forget A1 sauce (which I never liked anyway) this is an excellent steak sauce. Just to let everyone else know, in a scale from medium-hot, the 3 chiles put it at the "HOT" level. So you may want to cut back one or two for mild. I loved it as is. The marinade was also great. Thank you!

      The salsa was FANTASTIC. The steak, however, lacked flavor that I was expecting. The sauce made it up for it, though. Pretty good recipe overall.
