Ingredients
 

  • 1 1/2 pounds flap meat trimmed of excess fat
  • 3 tablespoons white vinegar
  • 1/4 cup lite soy sauce
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon Kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • 1 lime juiced and zested
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil

Instructions

  • Using a meat tenderizer, flatten the steak by about half to three quarters the thickness (this helps the steak become more tender)
  • Add all the ingredients together into a large bowl and let marinade for 2-4 hours (up to 8 hours).
  • In a large cast iron grill pan or outdoor grill, cook the meat on high heat for 3-4 minutes on each side.
  • Let rest for five minutes before slicing against the grain.
