Ingredients

1
pound beef flank steak, trimmed of fat
1/3
cup reconstituted organic orange juice concentrate
1/4
cup snipped fresh cilantro
2
tablespoons red wine vinegar
1
tablespoon olive oil
4
cloves garlic, minced
2
teaspoons ground cumin
1
teaspoon ground coriander
1/4
teaspoon salt
1/4
teaspoon crushed red pepper
2
red and/or green sweet peppers, halved
1
red onion, cut into 1/2-inch-thick slices

Directions

  • 1 Score both sides of steak in a diamond pattern by making shallow diagonal cuts at 1-inch intervals. Place steak in a resealable plastic bag set in a shallow dish.
  • 2 For marinade: In a small bowl, stir together orange juice, cilantro, vinegar, oil, garlic, cumin, coriander, salt, and crushed red pepper. Pour over steak in bag. Seal bag; turn to coat steak. Marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  • 3 Drain steak, reserving marinade. Brush sweet pepper halves and onion slices with reserved marinade; discard any remaining marinade. Set vegetables aside. For a charcoal grill, place steak on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill for 8 minutes. Turn steak. Place vegetables, cut sides down, on grill rack with steak. Grill steak and vegetables for 9 to 13 minutes or until steak is medium doneness (160°F) and vegetables are crisp-tender, turning vegetables occasionally to brown evenly. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Place steak and later vegetables on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.)
  • 4 To serve, thinly slice steak across the grain and cut sweet peppers into strips. Serve with grilled onion.
