Oh man, I forgot I had this one. I got this back in Febuary when I was searching for Chipotle recipes like mad. I actually have everything I need for it. Depending on what the weather's like later tonight (I'm expecting rain within the hour), I just might make some of the marinade up and do some steaks. Of course, I severely doubt my family will eat it, as they don't have much of a heat tolerance. Therefore, I'll have to make a little bit of the marinade and just marinate my steak.
Yields: 4 servings
1 lime, juiced
1 T minced garlic
1 t dried oregano
1 t ground cumin
2 T Chipotle peppers in Adobo sauce, minced
Adobo sauce, from the can, to taste
four 8 oz beef sirloin steaks
salt and pepper to taste
In a small bowl, mix the lime juice, garlic, oregano, and cumin. Stir in Chipotle peppers, and season to taste with Adobo sauce.
Pierce the meat on both sides with a sharp knife, sprinkle with salt and pepper, and place in a glass dish. Pour lime and Chipotle sauce over meat, and turn to coat. Cover, and marinate in the refrigerator for 1 – 2 hours.
Preheat grill for high heat. Lightly brush grill grate with oil. Place steaks on the grill, and discard marinade. Grill steaks for 6 minutes per side, or to desired doneness.
