- 2 teaspoons lime peel, grated
- 1 teaspoon salt
- 1 teaspoon black pepper
- 1⁄4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1⁄8 teaspoon ground cloves
- Score both sides of beef by cutting 1/4 inch deep diagonal lines about 1 inch apart in surface of steak to form diamond shaped design -- do not cut all the way through the meat.

- Add beef; turn to coat.
- Cover and refrigerate steak at least 2 hours.
- Remove beef from marinade; discard marinade.
- Grill beef over medium hot coals abut 6 minutes per side until medium-rare or to desired doneness.
I thought this steak turned out fantastic. I wound up marinating it for 2 days and it came out sort of sweet, but great!
I made this last evening using 1 New York Strip steak that was in the freezer and, oh my, was it ever delicious! The flavors are magical in their ability to carry you to a warm evening on a palm tree filled island. Add a fruit salad, coconut bread and some rum punch and you have a very yummy vacation at home.
Made as directed!<br/>Loved it, it had great flavor. Next time I'd change nothing. Very inexpensive meal! Thanks<br/>Made for PRMR!
