Cuban Style Marinade gives this steak recipe a boots of flavor

This recipe could not be easier to do.  Just five minutes prep, some time to marinade in the fridge and about 15 minutes to cook.  Serve it with your best tropical salad for a great barbecue night.

Tonight I used my favorite grill spice – McCormick’s Grill Mate Montreal Steak Seasoning.

This robust blend of coarsely ground peppers, garlic and spices makes for bolder tasting steaks.  You can see it used in another way in this recipe.  

For tonight’s meal, I combined the spice mix with ground cumin, oregano, orange juice and lime juice for a spectacular taste.
