What you need:
- 1.33 lbs. lean flank steak
- 2 limes, juice
- 1 orange, juiced
- 4 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 jalapeno, minced
- 1 cup cilantro, chopped

- 2 tbsp. olive oil
- Salt and pepper
Mix together the lime juice, orange juice, garlic, cilantro, jalapeno, vinegar, olive oil, salt, and pepper.

When ready to grill, preheat the grill over medium heat. Cook the steak for 6-8 minutes per side or until desired doneness. Let rest for 5 minutes and then slice thinly. (You could also broil this if you don't have a grill.)
