    Serves: 9 

    • 6 cloves garlic
    • 1/2 red onion, chopped
    • 2 limes, juiced
    • 1 medium red chilli
    • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme leaves
    • 1 cup loosely packed coriander leaves
    • 3/4 cup (190ml) vegetable oil
    • 2 tablespoons honey
    • 1.5 kg skirt steak
    • 1 pinch salt to taste

    Preparation:10min  ›  Cook:8min  ›  Extra time:9hours marinating  ›  Ready in:9hours18min 

    1. Puree the garlic, onion, lime juice, chilli, thyme, coriander, vegetable oil and honey into the bowl of a blender or food processor until the ingredients are well incorporated. Marinate the skirt steak with 1/2 cup of the puree in a resealable bag overnight in the refrigerator. Reserve the rest of the puree to use later as a sauce.
    2. Preheat the barbecue for medium-high heat.
    3. While barbecue is warming, remove the meat from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for at least 30 minutes. Discard any marinade left in the bag. Season the steak with the salt and cook to desired doneness, approximately 4 minutes per side for medium-rare.
    4. To serve, slice the steak against the grain into thin slices and drizzle the remaining marinade over the meat.

    Had a big party made this marinade with chicken breasts added some chillies and extra jalapenos also did half and half Cilantro and Garam Masala .....Everybody loved it!!!  -  16 Jul 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    My family LOVED this marinade! Where I changed things: 1) I forgot to buy fresh thyme so I used 1Tbs of dried and 2) my limes were kinda small so I used three. Some of the reserved sauce is in the fridge and I'm thinking it would be good on veggie wraps this weekend.  -  01 May 2007  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    I used this marinade and the meat was wonderful. But I used this marinade for shrimp to make my favorite shrimp taco (all ingredients except thyme) and it worked too. The dish was absolutely great. I think you can use for chicken too, not only for flank steak.  -  23 Dec 2008  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
