We grill all year, and beef is so good cooked outdoors. The simple marinade makes the steaks very juicy. We enjoy them with the refreshing salsa and tortillas.—Robin Hyde, Lincoln, Nebraska

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the first eight ingredients until blended. Divide steaks between two large resealable plastic bags. Add 1/2 cup marinade to each; seal bags and turn to coat. Refrigerate steaks and remaining marinade 1 to 2 hours.
  2. In another bowl, combine salsa ingredients. Refrigerate until serving.
  3. Drain steaks, discarding marinade in bags. Grill, covered, over medium heat 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Brush frequently with reserved marinade during the last 5 minutes of cooking. Serve with salsa. Yield: 4 servings (3 cups salsa).
