  • 1/2 cup olive oil or vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup lime juice
  • 1/3 cup loosely packed cilantro leaves
  • 4 chipotle peppers in adobo sauce, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons adobo sauce
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 tablespoon white vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 (2-pound) flank steak
  • salt and pepper


  • Add first 8 ingredients to a blender and blend until smooth. 
  • Pour into a large ziptop bag. Add flank steak, coating it well. Seal and refrigerate for at least 8 hours and up to 24 hours.
  • Let flank steak sit at room temperature for 30 minutes before grilling.
  • Pour marinade into a small saucepan. Boil for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally so it doesn't burn on the bottom.
  • Season flank steak with salt and pepper. Grill for about 8 minutes per side, or until desired degree of doneness. Drizzle marinade over steak and let it rest for 10 minutes. Slice thinly against the grain.
