Grilled Lime Marinated Flank Steak with Chipotle Honey Sauce

  • 2 ½ pounds flank steak

  • 1 canned chipotle chili pepper

  • 2 garlic cloves, chopped

  • 1 tablespoon chopped cilantro

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil

  • ½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice (about 4 limes)


  • 3 canned chipotle peppers, pureed

  • ¼ cup honey

  • 2 teaspoons peanut oil

  • 2 tablespoon balsamic vinegar

  • 2 tablespoons brown mustard

  • 10 tablespoons lime juice

  • 2 garlic cloves

  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin

  • salt and pepper

  • clinatro (optional)

Place the steak in large dish or baking pan. Mix together the chipotle, garlic, cilantro, vegetable oil, and lime juice in a bowl and pour over the steak. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 to 6 hours, turning occasionally.

Combine the chipotles, honey, peanut oil, vinegar, mustard, lime juice, garlic, and cumin in a blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Stir in the cilantro (optional) and season with salt and pepper to taste. Remove the steak from the marinade and season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat for about 5 minutes on each side for medium rare, 7 minutes per side for medium, or to desired doneness. Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for about 4 minutes. With a sharp knife, thinly slice the steak across the grain, at a sharp angle.

Serve the steak on top of a slice of French break and accompany each serving with several tablespoons of the sauce.
