Steps to Make It

  2. Place steaks in a resealable plastic bag. Place remaining ingredients in blender or food processor. Blend mixture until smooth.

  3. Pour half of mixture into bag with steaks.  Make sure meat is well coated.

  4. Release air from the bag, seal, and place steaks into a refrigerator for 6-24 hours. Store remaining half of marinade in an airtight plastic container in a refrigerator.  

  5. Preheat grill. Remove steaks from bag and discard marinade. Grill steaks on medium- heat until they reach the desired doneness. Once cooked, remove heat and let rest.
