Adapted from Steve Raichlen's The Barbecue! Bible. This is a quick, easy marinade that makes an amazing grilled steak. The key to making this REALLY fast is to use a thin cut steak and only cook it for a couple of minutes on each side. I serve with grilled vegetables and rice for a complete meal. Prep time includes 30 minutes of marinating in the fridge.

Directions

  1. Combine all ingredients except for the steaks in a food processor or blender. Process until the mixture is a smooth liquid paste.
  2. On a plate or in a zip top bag, combine 1/2 of the marinade with the steaks, making sure the meat is well coated. Let sit in the refrigerator for 1/2 hour. Reserve the remaining marinade.
  3. Grill the steaks over high heat, 2-3 minutes per side, basting if desired with the remaining marinade.
  4. Remove to a serving dish, brush with any remaining marinade, and serve.
