Steak with Citrus Salsa

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

  • 3 tablespoons lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 1/8 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 garlic clove, minced

Directions

  • In a shallow dish, combine the first six ingredients; add beef. Cover and refrigerate for 2 hours or overnight, turning occasionally.

  • Combine salsa ingredients in a bowl. Cut steak across the grain into thin slices. Serve with salsa.
Editor's Note
Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.

    this didn't work for us. We marinated the steak overnight, but once cooked, none of the flavor came through. The salsa was good, but never seemed to taste well with the steak.

    Loved IT! We didn't add the grated peel (no grater) but it was fantastic! We served it with corn on the cob and it seemed to work pretty ok. :") Enjoy!
