Grilled Lime Marinated Flank Steak & an Award

That's right friends, grilling season is officially upon us! Yesterday marked the first day of summer and to celebrate the hubby and I made this perfectly marinated Grilled Lime Flank Steak. This steak is juicy, tender, and sweetened with an amazing lime flavor. What could possibly make this meal better? The fact that it's ridiculously easy to make.

Get ready for one of the easiest recipes I've ever shared with you! We're talking a 2 minute marinade thrown together the night before. When you're ready to eat, throw this baby on the grill while you sip a margarita and soak up some sunshine...it's that easy! Enjoy the steak as is with a side of grilled veggies, wrap it into a burrito, or serve alongside a taco bar with all the fixins.



Ingredients:

1 pound flank steak or skirt steak
1 tablespoons olive oil
1 clove garlic, minced
4 limes, juiced
1 teaspoon lime zest
1 teaspoon McCormick Montreal Steak Seasoning
1 teaspoon ground cumin
Cilantro and lime wedges for garnish

Directions:

Place the flank steak in a Ziplock bag and throw in the rest of the ingredients. Zip the bag and mix everything around so that the steak is covered in the marinade. Let the flavors mingle overnight. The next day, grill the steak about 3-4 minutes on each side. Garnish with cilantro and lime wedges.

One random thing about myself is that I am obsessed with collecting wine corks...bags and bags of them. I still haven't done anything with them, but eventually I'll get around to it!
