1/3 c soy sauce
1 bunch of cilantro
1 lemon, juice only
1 lime, juice only
1 T cumin
3 T garlic, minced
2 t paprika
1 t oregano
1 t chili powder (more for more spice)


Pulse all ingredients in a food processor, and pour into a large zip lock bag with steak. It smells weird when you first mix it, but just trust me. Let it marinate in the fridge for at least 24 hours, but longer is better. I used very thinly sliced "carne asada" cut steak and let it sit for three days. When I pulled it out and grilled it, it came out great!

Cut it against the grain, put it in tacos or burritos, and top with avo-de-gallo, chipotle lime sauce, and cotija cheese.

    There really isn't much better than a perfectly grilled steak. While I usually like to sprinkle a steak with Lawry's Season Salt and freshly ground pepper, sometimes I like to mix it up a bit and use a marinade. This marinade goes really well with the Balsamic Asparagus with Brown Butter.


3 T soy sauce
2 t minced garlic
1 T worcestershire
1 t parsley
1 t basil
1/2 t pepper

Throw all the ingredients in a zip lock bag and mix them together. Then, drop in your steak. Let it sit in the refrigerator for at least an hour. Make sure you take it out of the fridge and let it sit for a few minutes before you grill it! This ensures that the steak cooks more evenly, and maximizes deliciousness.
