Updated September 28, 2006

Ingredients

Tequila Marinade

  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 2 tablespoons tequila
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon cumin seed
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 2 cloves garlic, peeled

Steak

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

Steps

  • 1
    In blender, place marinade ingredients. Cover and blend until mixed. Pierce beef with fork several times on both sides. Pour marinade into shallow glass or plastic dish or resealable food-storage plastic bag. Add beef; turn to coat with marinade. Cover dish or seal bag and refrigerate, turning beef occasionally, at least 6 hours but no longer than 24 hours.
  • 2
    Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. Remove beef from marinade; reserve marinade. Cover and grill beef over medium heat 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.

  • Piercing the meat with the tines of a fork helps the marinade penetrate the meat.
  • No tequila? Just use extra lime juice.
