Ingredients Nutrition

  • 2 -3 lbs flank steaks or 2 -3 lbs skirt steaks
  • 1 -2 onion, thinly sliced
  • 2 -3 oranges, juice only
  • salt and pepper, to season
  • 14 cup oil

Directions

  1. In a large stainless steel or glass bowl, mix the meat with the onions, orange juice, salt, pepper and oil. Cover and marinate at least 1 hour, or better yet overnight.
  2. Start a good fire in your grill, preferably with mesquite charcoal. Remove the meat from its marinade, pat dry and grill over hot flame until the first side is well browned, from 5-7 minutes.
  3. Turn the meat over and grill on the other side until cooked to desired doneness. Remove to a clean platter.
  4. Slice meat into thin strips across the grain and serve as a topping for tostadas or as a filling for tacos or burritos.
  5. VARIATIONS:
  6. Add some lime juice along with the orange juice in the marinade. Or use sour orange juice (naranja agria) if you can find it.
  7. Other possible marinade additions include ground cumin, chili powder and chopped cilantro. Everyone has their own favorites.
