Cilantro-Lime Marinated Steaks With Mexican Potato Salad

There is so much strange stuff out there on the internet.

Like this pic.

What really caught my eye, though, was the radiator in the background with its cover. That is a look I grew up with. I cannot tell you how many things I melted on that shelf when I was young.


Onto dinner.

This BBQ menu is out of this world.

If you like Mexican cuisine, here are some winning recipes.

The cilantro-lime marinade/sauce is good enough to eat by the spoonful. After only a brief time marinating, the steak is infused with the fresh and spicy flavors.

All at once crunchy and creamy, this lightly spiced Mexican Potato Salad has just enough kick to wake up your taste buds without overdoing it.

Cilantro-Lime Marinated Steaks


2 cups fresh cilantro
1/2 cup fresh lime juice
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
8 cloves garlic
4 green onions, chopped
1 serrano chile, seeded if desired, chopped
1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
4 New York strip steaks or rib eye steaks


1. Place the cilantro, lime juice, oil, garlic, green onions, serrano chile, and salt in a food processor. Process until smooth.

2. Place steak into a large zip lock bag and pour half of the marinade into the bag. Turn meat so the marinade completely covers it. Place into the refrigerator and let marinate for 2-3 hours. Reserve the other half of the marinade as a dipping sauce.

3. Preheat the grill to medium high heat. Brush grill grate with oil.

4. Grill steaks, covered, 2-3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let the meat rest for 5 minutes before slicing and serving with reserved sauce.

    Both great dishes, the potato salad has a little kick which is a nice surprise. The steak was delicious, even though I forgot to put the sauce on the table. I’m going to cook it again because the sauce smelled so delicious my mouth was watering all day.
