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
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)
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.
