Arrachera-Mexican Grilled Skirt Steak

This is a Paleo recipe. I have started trying to eat healthier. Here is a fairly easy recipe for dinner. Prep is five minutes and cooking is 10 minutes. You do need four hours to marinate. Use grass fed beef.


Size: 4

4 cloves garlic
1/2 white onion
1/2 cup olive oil
juice of 2 limes(3-4 tablespoons)
1 tsp apple cider vinegar
1 tsp dried oregano
1 tsp chipotle powder
1 tsp sea salt
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp black pepper
1 large pinch of ground cloves
1 pinch ground cinnamon
2-3 lbs skirt steak(can use hangar or flank)
One handful chopped cilantro
1 tomato, diced and salted
Lime wedges
Sliced radishes
Sliced jalapeƱo or other chile pepper


Add all of the marinade ingredients to a blender or small food processor and puree until fully combined. Place the marinade and steak in a resealable bag, making sure steak is fully coated. Refrigerate at least 4 hours, or overnight.

Prepare your grill for direct, high heat. Remove steak from the bag(discard bag and extra marinade) and grill until meat is seared and slightly charred, about 3 minutes per side. Allow steak to rest 5 minutes then slice and serve with your favorite accompaniments.
