"This can be used in fajitas, as an appetizer, or a main dish. Also good in sandwiches. Just make sure you reserve some of the marinade for a sauce."

fresh thyme leaves

My family LOVED this marinade! Where I changed things: 1) I forgot to buy fresh thyme so I used 1Tbs of dried and 2) my limes were kinda small so I used three.
Some of the reserved sauce is in the fridge and I'm thinking it would be good on veggie wraps this weekend.
i did not think the flavor was there. very bland. i would not make this recipe again.
Had a big party made this marinade with chicken breasts added some chillies and extra jalapenos also did half and half Cilantro and Garam Masala .....Everybody loved it!!!
I used this marinade and the meat was wonderful. But I used this marinade for shrimp to make my favorite shrimp taco (all ingredients except thyme) and it worked too. The dish was absolutely great. I think you can use for chicken too, not only for flank steak.
Awesome marinade...best fajitas I've ever made...I think even better than in restaurants. I didn't add all of the oil, used some broth in place (watching the diet) and it was still awesome. Used for fajitas and topped with a little sour cream-Delicious!
Very, very vibrant and fresh flavors. I served this with a saffron rice pilaf and everyone was spooning more of the marinade to mix and eat with their rice.
I used lime zest and the juice of two limes for this one. What a hit !
Both my boys and my husband loved this steak. I would have liked it to have a bit more of a lime taste, so maybe I'll marinate it overnight next time. If that doesn't work, I'll add more lime!
