1/2 cup fresh lemon (or lime) juice
1/2 cup chopped fresh cilantro
4 tsp. olive oil
4 cloves garlic, chopped
4 (6 to 7-oz) raw lean steaks (like filet mignon, sirloin, or flank)
Directions: Combine lemon juice, cilantro, oil, and garlic in a resealable bag. Add steak: marinate, refrigerated for 30 minutes to 4 hours. Preheat grill or broiler on high. Grill or broil steak for about 5 to 6 minutes on each side, or until no longer pink in the middle and steak reaches an internal temperature of about 145-150 degrees F.
Cooking Tip: Cooking times may vary depending on the thickness and weight of the beef. For medium rare, cook beef for the following times:
3 to 6 oz – 4 to 7 minutes on each side
7 to 12 oz – 6 to 9 oz on each side
13 to 16 oz – 7 to 10 minutes on each side.
You can also season beef with garlic, and fresh or dry herbs like sage.
