Chipotle Lime Marinated Steak

Well folks, it's Mexican Saturday, again!

This is one I grilled a few weeks ago and a foodie friend wanted the recipe - so here it is.

We had it as written, taco style but the steak could stand alone as an entree. I think a side of cowboy style pintos, roasted corn and a greenie veg would be just perfect. Enjoy!

Chipotle Lime Marinated Steak
Serves 4

1 -8 to 10 oz flank steak (or tri-tip)
1/2 cup honey
2 tablespoons minced chipotle chiles in adobo sauce
3 tablespoons Grey Poupon
1/2 cup fresh squeezed lime juice
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 teaspoon ground allspice
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 cup chopped cilantro
Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

In a medium bowl, mix honey with the next 8 listings. Stir well to blend. Place steak in a large sealable bag or container and add marinade. Chill for 2 or 3 hours. Remove and let rest for 30 minutes. Drain marinade into a saucepan and simmer for 5 minutes. Grill on a medium heat grill until desired doneness. Slice steak across the grain in thin strips, place in a serving bowl and pour heated marinade over the meat. Serve with warm tortillas, pico de gallo, sliced avocados and chopped tomatoes.


  1. Interesting combo-- I'm always looking for marinade ideas and this one sounds really good.
