How to Make Lime-Marinated Flank Steak


  1. In a glass pie plate, mix in the lime juice, oil, garlic, serrano, chili powder, cumin, and salt and stir well. Put the flank steak into this marinade mixture and turn to get it well coated. Cover it with some plastic wrap and put in the fridge for a few hours - up to overnight - turning every so often. Really, the longer it stays in the fridge, the more flavorful the steak will be.
  2. Take the steak out of the fridge and bring to room temp while you prep the grill by oiling the grates and preheating it on medium-high.
  3. Pat the steak with paper toweling to dry it. For medium rare, grill it for approx. 8-10 (flipping once). Keep it on longer if you want it more well done. Once done, let it rest on a cutting board for about 5 minutes. Slice the steak across the grain and on a slant and enjoy!
