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

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 zest
  • 1/2 teaspoon grated lime zest
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt

Directions

  1. In a shallow dish, combine the first six ingredients; add beef. Cover 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 thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°).
  3. Combine salsa ingredients in a bowl. Cut steak across the grain into thin slices. Serve with salsa.
Peppers (Hot)
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
