juice and grated peel from 2 medium limes
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 pound beef top round steak, cut 3/4 to 1-inch thick
3 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

- For Marinade: Combine ingredients. Marinate beef steak in 3/4 cup marinade in refrigerator 6 hour or as long as overnight. Refrigerate remaining marinade separately.

- Combine reserved marinade and cilantro. Carve steak. Serve with sauce and tortillas.
- To Broil: Place steak on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 2 to 3-inch from heat. Broil 3/4-inch thick steak 12 to 13 minutes (1-inch thick steak 17 to 18 minutes) for medium rare doneness, turning once. (Do not overcook.)
