LIME STEAK by Right-Brain Joanna
A hint of spicy heat and citrus make this steak a surprise for the palate.
Barbeque or high broiler heat.
4 cloves garlic, mashed
1 tsp/5g salt
1/2 tsp/1g pepper
2 tbsp/2g diced cilantro
1/4 cup/60 ml lime juice
2 tbsp/30 ml olive oil
1/2 -1 tsp red pepper flakes
1 lb/454 g top sirloin (or even better a hanger steak if you can source one)
- Mix all marinade ingredients in a ziplock bag big enough for the beef to move around in.
- Add the meat and leave to marinate for half an hour (no longer as the meat will be embittered).
- Grill, broil or pan fry the steaks according to your liking.
Serve as I did with potatoes and vegetables; or for satisfying party food, slice thinly and serve for tacos with Mexican sides such as diced tomatoes, guacamole, grated cheese and tortillas.
I truly liked the taste of this beef and changed it up by marinating a small 1 lb/454g roast instead of a steak.
