I know it is a good meal when my husbad says to me, “Next time we have company, serve this.” It was delicious, presented well, and was easy to make!
Cilantro Lime Marinated Flank Steak
Recipe from www.fortheloveoffood.net
1 c. fresh cilantro
1/4 c. fresh lime juice
2 1/2 Tbsp. olive oil
4 cloves garlic
2 green onions, chopped
1 Serrano chili, seeded, chopped
3/4 tsp. sea salt
1 lb. flank steak
Place cilantro, lime juice, oil, garlic, green onions, Serrano chili, and sea salt together in a food processor or large bowl. Food process or blend with an immersion blender until smooth.
Place flank steak in large freezer bag and pour half the marinade into the bag. Squish the bag so the marinade is completely covering the flank steak. Place into the refrigerator and let marinate for 3-4 hours. Reserve other half of the marinade as a dipping sauce.
Remove steak from refrigerator 30 minutes prior to grilling. Preheat grill to medium high heat. Brush grill grate with oil. Grill flank steak for 2-3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Remove from heat and let the meat rest for 5-7 minutes before slicing and serving with reserved sauce. Enjoy!

Food for Thought: We served this with some grilled peppers and guacamole and chips and it was a delicious combination. I also thought that it would be good sliced thinly and served in tortillas fajita style.
