Flank Steak with Lime-Chipotle Sauce

posted in Main Dishes |

This Lime-Chipotle sauce that we used both to marinate and then serve over the flank steak was just divine — spicy, sweet, and citrusy! We also grilled up some asparagus (brushed with a touch of olive oil and seasoned with salt and pepper) and cooked potatoes with garlic and some fresh rosemary from our yard. Everything was perfect together — and of course, that sauce somehow ended up on the potatoes as well! 😉

Lime-Chipotle Sauce
1/2 cup honey
2 tbsp chipotle chiles in adobo, minced
3 tbsp Dijon mustard
1/2 cup lime juice
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp allspice
1 tsp cumin
1/2 cup chopped cilantro
salt and pepper

1/2 lb flank steak
1 lime

1. Mix all ingredients together and marinate flank steak for an hour or more
2. Remove steak from marinade (save it!) and grill to desired doneness, flipping once
3. In small sauce pan, let the marinade simmer over low heat
4. Slice steak diagonally across the grain; top with the marinade/sauce

Serve with a lime wedge to squeeze over steak.

Although you’ll really want to, it is not advised to pour the remainder of the sauce directly into your mouth.
