  2. Add steak, turning to coat well. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, or longer for extra flavor.
  3. Remove steak from marinade and grill over medium-high heat 6-8 minutes per side for medium rare (145 degrees F) to medium (160 degrees F) doneness. Baste with remaining marinade halfway through cooking, if desired. Discard any leftover marinade.

This was pretty good, alot of flavor and very quick to make. I marinated the steaks for 30 minutes and they tasted very nice, I just used a gallon plastic bag and put in 2 steaks and got both steaks flat. About halfway through marinating them I just flipped the bag over to help the process. Next time I will marinade longer for more flavor and maybe add some hotter spices to liven it up some more. Very good though!

I ended up marinating this overnight because we were invited out with friends-its was waaaaaay to salty. I think its worth another shot though- next time I'll marinate for the recommended time.

Not something unforgetable but this was a really good marinade that I will make again. I cubed a beef filet, and make kabobs out of it.

Absolutely love this recipe, the only thing I do differently is marinate for 6-8 hours and I also add about 1/2 tablespoon (or a bit more) of crushed red pepper flakes to add a bit of a kick. Then I thinly slice it and serve on toasted crusty rolls.

I followed the advice of another review and added a little more seasoning just before putting on the grill and it worked nicley.

Soaked for 6 hours and it came out great. I am not one who throws 5 stars out very often. This one is 5 stars.

Marinated overnight. Was decent, good, but nothing special. My boyfriend wasn't a fan of the citrus, he usually just does montreal steak seasoning, but I liked it. The leftovers were good two days later!
