I got this recipe from the show good eats with alton brown. These are good for a quick dinner. I made these with flat iron steak. The marinade can be made with a wisk in a bowl.

Very tasty! Made this for dinner tonight with grilled zuccini and poblano peppers. The only change I made was using regular paprika, and adding some dried red pepper flakes to the marinade. Definately will use this recipe again!
