Cuban Flank Steak

Tonight we are going to grill flank steak for dinner.  I found this recipe on Kalyn's Kitchen (my favorite website).  It sounds quite tasty!

1 large piece of flank steak (2-3 lbs)
1/3 cup fresh lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
1 tsp cumin
1 tsp oregano
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp garlic powder
1 Tbsp soy sauce
1/2 tsp ground chipotle chile powder (or your favorite hot sauce - I used Chalula's)
2 tsp lime zest (optional)

Marinate meat up to 24 hours.  Take meat out of fridge, and let come to room temp before grilling.  Preheat grill to medium high.  Grill meat to desired doneness, approximately 4-5 minutes per side for rare to medium rare; or 6-7 minutes for medium to medium-well.  Time will depend on the thickness of your steak.  Remove meat from grill and let it rest about 5 minutes covering with foil to keep warm.  Slice across the grain and serve warm with salsa.
