  • 2-3 lb flank steak or skirt, 1 inch thick
  • 1/3 cup white vinegar
  • 1/3 cup olive oil or oil of choice
  • 2 limes juiced
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp pepper
  • 1 tsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp cumin
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 1 tsp smoked paprika


  • Combine the white vinegar, olive oil, lime juice, garlic and spices together in a bowl. Mix well. Pour the marinade over the steak and turn to coat. Marinate in the fridge for at least 1 hour up to 24 hours.
  • After it's finished marinating, place the steak a baking sheet, turn the oven to broil and set the rack to the top position. Broil the steak for 6 minutes, flip, broil 5 more minutes for medium. Cook longer for more well done steak, but keep in mind that flank steak will get tough the more you cook it.
  • Let rest 10 minutes. Cut the steak into slices and serve with Tomatillo Avocado Salsa, fresh cilantro and lime wedges.
