Ingredients

  • 3 lbs Flank or Skirt Steak I use 2 flank steaks
  • 2 TBS olive oil

  • 1/2 jalapeno diced more or less if desired
  • 1/4 cup cilantro chopped

Marinade

  • Squeeze juice from orange and lime into a large glass or stainless steel bowl.
  • Whisk in olive oil, vinegar, coconut aminos, garlic, jalapeno, cilantro, cumin, salt, and pepper.
  • Add meat, turn until well combined and all the meat is covered.
  • Marinate covered in the fridge all day. At least 4+ hours.

Grilling

  • Remove meat from the fridge about 30 minutes before grilling.
  • Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  • When grill is heated, place flank steak on the grill. Grill each side about 5 minutes. Times may vary due to thickness of meat and the grill.
