Grilled Lime-Cilantro Beef Chuck Steaks
Fresh lime and cilantro are the highlighted flavors in this slightly spicy-hot southwestern marinade. Simple and delicious!
4 boneless beef chuck eye steaks, cut 3/4 to 1-inch thick (about 1 3/4 pounds)
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
3 tablespoons water
1 small jalapeño pepper, minced
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
1 large clove garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
- Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl. Place beef steaks and marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 1 to 2 hours, turning occasionally.
- Remove steaks; discard marinade. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 16 to 20 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning occasionally. Season with salt and pepper.
Makes 4 servings.
