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. ;-)

I made this for my family tonight, and all three of my girls couldn't get enough. Perfect balance of tastes nothing overpowered or overwhelmed. I used this with t-bone steaks, and it was perfect!
