Orange Tequila Steak Recipe - Low Carb & Healthy

Low carb recipe for Orange Tequila Steak which belongs to the Beef recipe category.

Ingredients Needed

  1. 1 pound (455 g) beef steak?Rib eye is my choice, but sirloin or T-bone
  2. should do fine.
  3. 3 cloves garlic
  4. cup (60 ml) lemon juice
  5. cup (60 ml) lime juice
  6. 1 ounces (45 ml) tequila
  7. 1 teaspoons chili powder
  8. 1 tablespoon (1.5 g) Splenda
  9. 1 teaspoons dried oregano
  10. 3 tablespoons (45 ml) olive oil
  11. teaspoon orange extract

Cooking Instructions

Throw the steak in a big resealable plastic bag.

Mix together everything else, reserving some liquid for basting, and pour the rest into the bag.

Seal the bag, pressing out the air as you go.

Turn the bag to coat the steak and then throw it in the fridge and let the steak marinate for at least a few hours, and a whole day is fine.

Pull the steak out of the fridge and pour off the marinade.

Now you get to decide?outside on the grill or inside in the broiler? Either way, grill or broil your steak fast, close to high heat (but if you're using a charcoal grill, keep down flare-ups; they char, not cook).

If your steak is 1 inch (3 cm) thick (that's how I have the meat guys cut mine), about 6 to 6 minutes per side will be right for medium to medium-rare.

Baste at least 2 or 3 times with the reserved marinade during cooking?using a clean utensil each time you baste.

Serving Yield

2 to 3 servings
