  • 2 teaspoons grated orange rind
  • 1/4 cup fresh orange juice
  • 2 teaspoons grated lime rind
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice, divided
  • 2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground chipotle powder
  • 1 (1-pound) flat iron steak, trimmed
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 1 cup finely chopped red bell pepper
  • 1 cup finely chopped peeled seeded cucumber
  • 3 tablespoons finely chopped red onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and finely chopped


  1. Combine the orange rind, orange juice, lime rind, 2 TBS lime juice, 1 TBS oil, garlic, brown sugar, chili powder, and chipotle powder in a bowl. Stir with a whisk.
  2. Add the steak to the seasonings and coat well. Let it stand for 30 minutes at room temperature, turning occasionally to keep both sides coated.
  3. Heat a grill pan on high heat and coat in cooking spray.
  4. Remove the steak from the seasoning and sprinkle with ½ TSP salt. Then, add the steak to the pan and grill for 5 minutes on each side (medium rare).
  5. Take the steak off the grill, let stand for 5 minutes, and then slice across the grain in small strips.
  6. Combine the remaining 1 TBS lime juice, 1 TBS oil, and 1/2 TSP salt with the chopped bell pepper, cucumber, red onion, cilantro, and jalapeño.
  7. Serve the steak with a side of the topping, or pour it over the top.
