Citrus Marinated Flank Steak Recipe

This is my all-time favorite and most popular steak marinade.  The citrus really helps to tenderize the meat and leaves it with an amazing flavor.  For this recipe, I used flank steak and marinated it for several hours.  This Citrus Marinated Flank Steak is a recipe you must try on your next barbecue.

Citrus Marinated Flank Steak

Yield: 4
Prep Time: 2 hours
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 2 hours 15 minutes


  • The juice of 1 orange
  • The juice of 2 limes
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, roughly chopped
  • 1 tablespoon chipotle chili powder
  • 3 tablespoons chopped cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 2 pound flank steak


  1. With a small, sharp paring knife score the steak on both sides.
  2. Combine the orange juice, lime juice, olive oil, garlic, chili powder, cumin and salt in the bowl of a food processor or blender; puree until smooth. Place the steak in a large, resealable plastic bag and pour the marinade over it. Press out the air, seal the bag and marinate at room temperature for at least 2 hours.
  3. Prepare the coals on the grill until they are glowing red with a white ash around them. Drain and discard the marinade and place the steak 4 inches over the coals; sear quickly, about 3 to 4 minutes on each side.
  4. Move the steak away from the direct heat, cover the grill and continue to cook until the internal temperature reaches 135 F, about 7 to 10 minutes longer. Remove the steak from the grill and allow to rest for 10 minutes before slicing and serving.

  5. So – I live in the city where grills are not easily accessible therefore I had to use a grill pan. Though I know this piece of fine meat would have tasted better charred, I had to do what I had to do. I followed all of the marinating directions, except I marinated overnight and I didn’t discard the marinade, I actually reduced it in a small pan, poured it over the meat and rice with broccoli. AWESOME!!!!! I also added more salt as well… Thanks for sharing this!!!
