Ingredients

  • 3 lbs flap steak
  • 1 Jalapeño
  • Juice and zest of 3 limes
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon ground oregano
  • 2 garlic cloves finely minced
  • 1 tablespoon ground paprika
  • ½ cup oil
  • Salt and pepper

Instructions

  • Add all ingredients to a resealable plastic bag.
  • Let the meat sit in the marinade in the fridge for at least 4 hours. Overnight is best.
  • Take meat out of the fridge and let it rest for a few minutes before placing on the grill.
  • Heat grill to medium heat 350 degrees F.
  • Place meat on grill.
  • Cover it up, making sure the heat doesn’t go past 350 F.
  • Cook 10-15 minutes on each side, depending on the thickness and desired wellness.
  • Touch it with your tongs and make sure the meat “bounces back.” Or, you can stick it with a cheap meat thermometer.
  • Let the meat rest for 10 minutes in a foil tent before slicing as thinly as possible.
