Companion recipe: Orange Salsa


Combine the orange juice concentrate, tequila, lime juice, oil, ginger, garlic, salt, oregano and red pepper. Place the steak in a plastic bag; add the marinade, turning to coat. Close the bag securely and marinate in the refrigerator 4 hours to overnight.

Remove the steak from marinade, discarding marinade. Place the steak on a grill over medium coals.

Grill 22 to 26 minutes for medium-rare (150 degrees F) to medium (160 degrees F) doneness, turning once. Remove the steak to a carving board; let stand 10 minutes.

Carve the steak crosswise into thin slices; arrange on a serving platter. Garnish with cilantro and lime.

Serve with Orange Salsa.
