A Betty Crocker cookbook shares a healthy recipe! An easy marinade gives a flavor kick to low-fat grilled beef.

Ingredients

Marinade

2
cloves garlic, finely chopped
1/4
cup lime juice
2
tablespoons olive or vegetable oil
2
tablespoons tequila
1/2
teaspoon salt
1/2
teaspoon ground cumin
1/2
teaspoon ground red pepper (cayenne)

Beef and Salsa

2
lb boneless beef top round steak, about 1 inch thick
1
cup Old El Paso™ Thick 'n Chunky salsa

Directions

  • 1 In shallow glass or plastic dish or resealable freezer plastic bag, mix marinade ingredients. Pierce beef with fork several times on both sides; add beef to bag and turn to coat. Cover dish or seal bag; refrigerate, turning beef occasionally, at least 6 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 2 Heat gas or charcoal grill. Remove beef from marinade; reserve marinade. Place beef on grill over medium heat. Cover grill; cook 20 to 25 minutes for medium doneness, brushing occasionally with marinade and turning once. Discard any remaining marinade.
  • 3 Cut beef across grain into thin slices. Serve with salsa.

Expert Tips

No tequila? Use lime juice but expect a different flavor.

Although round steak is a very flavorful cut of beef, it is not very lean so it benefits from an overnight marinating to help tenderize it.

Piercing the meat with the tines of a fork helps the marinade penetrate the meat.
