Steak with Citrus Salsa Recipe

Steak with Citrus Salsa Recipe

A lime juice marinade really perks up these grilled steaks, and the snappy, light citrus salsa is a super change from the usual heavy steak sauce. I brighten up winter meals by broiling the meat and serving it this way. —Kathleen Smith, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. + marinating Grill: 15 min. YIELD:4-6 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup soy sauce
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 1-1/2 pounds beef top sirloin steak (about 1 inch thick)
  • SALSA:
  • 2 navel oranges, peeled, sectioned and chopped
  • 1/4 cup chopped green onions
  • 2 tablespoons orange juice
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoon chopped lemon
  • 1 tablespoon chopped lime
  • 1 tablespoon sugar
  • 1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1 teaspoon minced jalapeno pepper
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime peel
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

  • 1. In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first six ingredients; add beef. Seal and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.
  • 2. Drain and discard marinade. Broil or grill steak, uncovered, over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
  • 3. Combine salsa ingredients in a bowl. Cut steak across the grain into thin slices. Serve with salsa. Yield: 4-6 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
