  • Marinade
  • 3/4 cups - orange juice
  • 1/2 cups - lemon juice
  • 1/3 cups - lime juice
  • 4 cloves - garlic, minced
  • 1/2 cups - soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoons - finely chopped canned chipotle pepper
  • 1 tablespoons - chili powder
  • 1 teaspoons - ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoons - paprika
  • 1 teaspoons - dried oregano
  • 1 tablespoons - black pepper
  • 1/2 bunches - fresh cilantro, chopped

  • Directions:

    Combine orange, lemon and lime juice in large bowl along with garlic, soy sauce, chipotle pepper, chili powder, cumin, paprika, oregano, pepper and cilantro.

    Slowly whisk in the olive oil until all ingredients are well combined. Remove one cup of marinade; place in a small bowl, cover and refrigerate for later use.

    Place flank steak in a resealable freezer bag (or between two sheets of heavy plastic wrap) on the counter and firmly pound steak with smooth side of meat mallet to 1/4-inch thickness. Uncover steak and firmly poke it all over with a fork.

    Add the meat to the marinade in the large bowl and cover (or place in plastic resealable freezer bag) and allow to marinade in the fridge for 24 hours.

    Preheat outdoor grill to medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate. Remove steak from marinade and grill to desired doneness - about 7 minutes per side for medium. Discard used marinade.

    Remove meat from heat and let rest for 5 minutes, then slice across the grain; pour the reserved unused marinade over the hot meat and serve immediately.
