Citrus Grilled Steak

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.
