Ingredients

1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro leaves

1/3 cup olive oil

1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce

1/4 cup freshly squeezed orange juice

2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lime juice

4 cloves garlic (minced)

1 jalapeno (seeded and diced)

1 teaspoon ground cumin

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

1 1/2 pounds flank steak

Directions

In a medium bowl, combine cilantro, olive oil, soy sauce, orange juice, lime juice, garlic, jalapeno, cumin and 1 teaspoon pepper; set aside 1/2 cup of the mixture in the refrigerator until ready to serve.

In a gallon size Ziploc bag or large bowl, combine steak and remaining cilantro mixture; marinate for at least 4 hours to overnight, turning the bag occasionally. Drain the steak from the marinade.

Preheat grill to medium high heat. Using paper towels, pat both sides of the steak dry; season with salt and pepper, to taste.

Add steak to grill, and cook, flipping once, until desired doneness, about 6 minutes per side for medium rare. Let rest 5 minutes.

Thinly slice steak against the grain and serve with reserved 1/2 cup cilantro mixture.
