READY IN: 2hrs 20mins
Recipe by HeatherFeather

I found this recipe in a recent issue of Gemma's Homestyle Italian Cooking. It didn't strike me as very Italian sounding recipe, but it still sounds tasty.

Heather, this was a great sounding recipe when I first saw it for our cookout-cookathon. I made the marinade, but I used filets instead of the chuck steak. It was wonderful. I am addicted to lime and cilantro anyway, and this was a great marinade. I will use it again. Thanks for posting this recipe. ;-)
