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!
This turned out great, its my family's favorite.
I really enjoyed the flavor of this marinade. I, too, skipped the jalapeno, but the cilantro and lime combo was delightful.
This is a good quick marinade. I left out the jalapeno because I didn't have one and added red pepper flakes. They worked well. I would like to try this again with the jalapeno and maybe some more heat. Thanks for sharing!
Excellent! I was worried that an 45min would not be enough time to marinate, but it turned out fantastic. The lime really added a wonderful dimension that I was not expecting! I followed another person's post advice about scouring the steak and I think it really helped soak up the yummy flavor!
Very good! I used the marinade, as written, on a 1 1/2 lb. flank steak, which I lightly scored on both sides. It picked up the flavors very well and my family enjoyed it very much. I served this with a nacho casserole and grilled banana peppers. Wonderful dinner! thanks Heather :)
Heather, this was really good. I did omit the cumin (just had too much this week) and used about 2 tbsp Worchestershire instead (for the spices and color). I know that really changes the recipe--sorry. Next time I will do it by the book. I was amazed how the lime juice went to work tenderizing the meat. I used a top round and you could cut it with a fork. Also I was a little concerned when I tasted the marinade and it seemed really hot but the finished product was not hot at all. Just a nice crispy edge on a juicy piece of meat. And so flavorful. 5 stars to you! Thanks.
