Tequila and Lime Marinated Steak

Published On March 7, 2013 | By Peter Georgakopoulos | Entree, Food

When I think of tequila and limes, I think of warmer climates and relaxing vacations.  I think of margaritas and salt-rimmed glasses.  I do not think of using tequila and lime as a marinade for steak!  But that’s exactly what I did here.  And I have to say, the results were surprising. This recipe for a Tequila and Lime Marinated Steak will have you pulling out the barbecue in no time!

There’s obviously a little science going on here, as the meat gets a good workout from the tequila and lime juice acids and the salt.  This helps produce a juicy, perfectly cooked, soft steak.  The best way to cook this would be on a barbecue; however, a griddle pan and hot oven would also work perfectly well.  Once your steak is cooked, finish it off with freshly chopped cilantro, freshly squeezed lime juice and slices of fresh jalapeño peppers.

I decided to serve this up as part of a “Tex-Mex” inspired feast.  With a little creative license (and I’m not sure how authentic it is), I’ve paired the steak with a number of sides including sweet roasted baby peppers, salt and lime “massaged” slaw, guacamole and fresh corn on the cob with a cilantro and lime butter.  I think tequila just went from being an ordinary ingredient to having extraordinary uses!
