Steak Marinade AKA Carne Asada Marinade

Recipe taken from

3/4 cup orange juice

1 tablespoon ground cumin

Combine the orange, lemon, and lime juice in a large glass or ceramic bowl along with the garlic, soy sauce, chipotle pepper, chili power, ground cumin, paprika, dried oregano, black pepper, and cilantro. Slowly whisk in the olive oil until marinade is well combined. Remove one cup of the marinade and place in a small bowl, cover with plastic wrap and refrigerate for use after the meat is cooked.
Place the flank steak between two sheets of heavy plastic (resealable freezer bags work well) on a solid, level surface. Firmly pound the steak with the smooth side of a meat mallet to a thickness of 1/4 inch. After pounding, poke steak all over with a fork. Add the meat to the marinade in the large bowl, cover, and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 24 hours.
Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.
Remove the steak from the marinade and grill to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium rare. Discard used marinade. Remove meat from heat and slice across the grain.
Pour the one cup of reserved, unused marinade over the hot meat and serve immediately.

**Jim found this recipe and used it for Carne Asada when we did our Cinco De Mayo dinner. I was hesitant to try it, but when I did...I LOVED IT! We now use it to marinate our steak. I don't use my Hienz 57 anymore! YUMMIEST WAY TO HAVE A STEAK!
