Ingredients

  • 2 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 jalapeno diced
  • 2 T fresh cilantro chopped
  • 1 orange zested and juiced
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 T apple cider vinegar
  • 1/4 c olive oil

Instructions

  • Combine all marinate ingredients in a zip-top bag. (The mixture will be more of a paste than a traditional marinade.) Place steak in bag rubbing marinade mixture over steak. Close securely and set in refrigerator from 1 to 4 hours.
  • Remove steak from refrigerator and allow to sit at room temperature at least 30 minutes before grilling. Pre-heat grill to medium high. (If your grill doesn't have a thermometer, an easy test would be to hold your hand 4 to 5 inches over the grate. You will only be able to hold your hand there for 2 to 3 seconds at this temperature.) Grilling time will depend on the thickness of steak and how well done you like it. Place steak on grill at an angle. Rotate a quarter turn after 2 to 3 minutes depending of degree of doneness that you prefer. Cook another 2 to 3 minutes at this angle before flipping to other side. Again cook 2 to 3 minutes, rotate a quarter turn and cook another 2 to 3 minutes. Usually the second side requires less grill time so watch it carefully. Using an instant read thermometer is the most accurate method for assuring you get the degree of doneness that you prefer. Remove from grill and let steak rest 10 minutes before slicing.
