      OMG!!! What a delicious marinade!! This was so good and didn't require a lot of advance time to marinade to get the great flavor, just loved it!! DH ate a very late lunch and didn't want dinner, so I had a flank steak that was between 1/4 and 1/2 lb in the freezer, so I took it out and then worked on the marinade. I poured the marinade mixture over the partially frozen steak and let it come to room temperature. The only change I made was to use chipotle chili powder instead of the actual canned pepper, as I couldn't find them at the store. I was worried that the amount of cilantro and then the amount of dry corriander and cumin, it would be overwhelming, but so wrong. I am finding that I am really one who loves the flavors of SA. Thanks for sharing such a great recipe. Made for CQ 2014.
