Paleo: Mexican Flank Steak

10 Jul

I made this delicious recipe last week.  It has definitely made my list of top Paleo recipes.  Publix was slap out of Flank Steak, but I used Flap Steak instead – it was still delicious.  I found the recipe on my Paleo App.  Try it out and enjoy!

Mexican Flank Steak

Recipe Ingredients:

1.5 pounds flank steak (flap steak)

4 garlic cloves, finely chopped

2 jalapeno pepper, finely chopped

1/4 cup finely chopped cilantro

1 teaspoon cumin

1 teaspoon chili powder

1 teaspoon oregano

Pinch, cayenne pepper

2 limes, juiced

1 orange, juiced

8-12 ounces beer (or beef broth – I used beef broth)

Cooking Instructions:

Slice the steak on the diagonal into thin strips.  Combine all ingredients in a large ziploc bag or in a shallow dish (meat should be completely covered in liquid).  Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 3 hours.  Take out and drain off the marinade.  Lightly salt the steak.  The meat can be cooked in a skillet with coconut oil or grilled.  Cook 3-6 minutes on each side for medium-rare.  Makes 6 servings.

If you know me, I added some ingredients.  🙂  I sauteed a red, green and yellow bell pepper for a few minutes prior to cooking the steak.  I added the steak to the hot skillet, cooked for a bit and then topped with the bell peppers.  I cannot explain to you how delicious this dish is!  I served it with mashed sweet potatoes and green beans.  Oddly enough, all the tastes blended well with each other.

    Sounds really good. What Paleo App do you have? Also, forgive me but what is Flat steak?

      It was delicious. I’m not exactly sure how to explain flap steak, but it is real “meaty” and there’s hardly any fat. Oh and it’s tender too.
