Chili Lime Steak

I have been looking for new recipes, and this one was a winner! I served mine Mexican style with fresh cooked tortillas, pico de gallo and guacamole, but the steak had amazing flavor all alone and would be outstanding by itself or in a salad! Definitely going to be baking this one time and time again! :) 

Chili Lime Steak
Recipe slightly adapted from Our Best Bites

1-2 pounds flank steak (boneless)
1 tsp garlic powder
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp coriander
1/2 tsp oregano
1/8 tsp cayenne pepper 
3/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1 lime, juiced (about 2 Tbsp juice)
1 Tbsp olive oil

To make the rub, combine the spices in a small bowl and add the lime juice and olive oil. Stir to combine. Place the steak in a shallow dish (like a 9X13). Pour the spice mixture over the steak and then use your hands to rub it in. Let the steak stand for 15 minutes. While the meat is standing, preheat your grill. Place the steak on the grill over medium-high heat and cook for 5-7 minutes per side or until desired doneness is reached. (I recommend flipping at 5 minutes, and then checking at the next 5 minute mark) Remove from grill and allow to stand for 5 minutes before slicing. Slice the steak against the grain into strips about 1/4 inch thick. 

Note: If you are pressed for time, you can make the rub ahead of time. I rubbed mine on the steak and left it in the fridge all day, but you don't have to do that. If you do refrigerate it, just make sure you let it sit at room temperature for 15 minutes or so.
