Ingredients

  • 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

Instructions

  • With a small, sharp paring knife score the steak on both sides.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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.
