Steaks in Garlic-Lime



  • 6 cloves garlic
  • 1 1/4 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp ground cumin
  • 3/4 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/2 cup sour orange juice (or lime juice)
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil
  • For the steaks
  • 4 (6-8 ounce) beef steaks, cut 1/2 inch thick (bottom round, top round, sirloin, etc.) Read more:
  • 2 large onions cut into 1/2 inch slices (optional) Read more:
  • 2 Tbsp olive oil


Step 1

Preheat grill to high. Prepare the adobo (marinade) by combining the garlic, salt, cumin, and pepper in a mortar and grind slowly with a pestle gradually working in the lime juice and olive oil until you have a smooth paste. Or, to save time, put all these ingredients in a blender and process to a smooth paste. Brush some of the adobo on the steaks 10 minutes in advance of placing on the grill. This is not necessary, but will impart additional flavor to the steaks.

Step 2

When grill is ready, oil grill grate. Brush onions with oil and place on the hot grate. Grill for 4 minutes on each side, seasoning with salt and pepper.

Step 3

Once the onions are on the grill, brush the steaks with the adobo and place on the grill alongside the onions. Grill for 3 minutes per side for medium rare, basting with the adobo.

Step 4

Transfer the steaks to a platter or individual plates and brush one final time with the remaining adobo using all of it. Let stand for 3 minutes, then serve with the grilled onions.

Step 5

This dish goes well with rice, rice and black beans, tortillas, or garlic bread.
