Directions

  1. Place cumin seeds into a small skillet over medium heat; stir constantly until seeds turn dark brown and smell toasted, about 1 minute. Immediately pour seeds into a bowl to stop the cooking. Mix cumin seeds with orange juice, vegetable oil, steak seasoning, lime juice, and oregano in a bowl.
  2. Place steaks into a large resealable plastic bag, pour orange juice marinade over the meat, and squeeze out air. Seal bag and turn it over several times to coat meat with marinade. Refrigerate at least 30 minutes, or longer for extra flavor.
  3. Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat and lightly oil the grate.
  4. Remove steaks from marinade, shaking off any excess. Discard used marinade. Grill steaks on the preheated grill until seared on the outsides and still slightly pink in the centers, 6 to 8 minutes per side. An instant-read meat thermometer inserted sideways into the center of the thickest steak should read 145 degrees F (65 degrees C). Let steaks rest for 3 minutes before slicing.

Used boneless NY strip steaks instead of rib eyes. This marinade gave the steaks a flavor unlike any marinade I've ever used. I live in Florida, so I'm accustomed to eating Cuban cuisine (and love it), but this was just really incredibly delicious. I had to go to 3 stores to find the cumin "seeds," but I'm glad I did because that's the first flavor that jumps out at you. Had this for dinner with black beans and yellow rice garnished with chopped onions and an ear of corn on the cob. Just delicious.

Used Skirt Steak so I could cook it in the frying pan. It was awesome, and the hubby loved it. My version of Montreal-style seasoning has a lot of salt in it, so for next time I will use less, to get a cleaner taste.

My husband and daughter liked this very well. I used all of the marinade ingredients exactly, but I marinated the steak for about 8 hours. I also used top sirloin instead of rib eye, both because of the cost and also the fat content. My family said the steak was tender. Thanks!

Awesome! We made the following changes: replaced the orange juice with fresh lime juice and added 1/2 bottle of light colored beer such as Corona to the marinate. Also added 1-2 Tbls fresh chopped garlic.

Made this last night. Hubby was very sceptical and can't wait to have it again. Just love it.
