Ole' Garlic Flank Steak

Bedfellow #3
So far on my new blog, I've posted a Mexican dip and a Mexican salad. I thought I'd continue on with the theme and do some grilling, Mexican style. Let's get started with:

Ole' Garlic Flank Steak

1 ( 1 & 1/2 lb.) lean flank steak
1/4 c. lime juice
1/4 c. tequila (for you non-drinkers, this cooks off and only the flavor remains)
1/4 c. minced fresh cilantro
3 cloves garlic, minced
2 t. coarsely ground pepper

Trim fat from steak, and place in a large shallow dish. Combine lime juice and next 4 ingredients; pour over steak. Cover and marinate in refrigerator 24 hours; turning occasionally.

Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Coat grill rack with cooking spray; place on grill over medium-hot coals or gas setting. Cook steaks 6-7 min. on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Slice steak diagonally across grain. Serve immediately. Yield: 6 servings
