Ah, St. Patrick’s Day. The time for friends to come together, drink some Irish beer, and enjoy a nice meal of Tequila Lime London Broil Steak. Oops, Cinco De Mayo came a little early here at the ranch, but no matter. We had an abundance of limes left over from our last excursion to BJ’s, so a tequila lime marinade was in order. First I tried to google search a recipe, and found a great one brought to me by Hormel. It basically read like this:
1 c. lime juice
1 packet of Hormel’s Tequila Lime Marinade Powder
Mix, and pour over steak. Grill and enjoy!
So I asked my lovely wife for some assistance, because I was basically going to dump tequila, lime juice and kosher salt (the only kind for anything) into a bowl and then pour it over the steak. She gave me this recipe and I basically followed it, but with a few modifications. Here’s my version:
- 1/3 cup honey
- 1/3 cup agave nectar
- 3 minced chipotles, plus a couple of spoonfuls of the adobado sauce
- 1/4 cup Dijon mustard
- 2/3 cup lime juice
- 1/4 cup tequila
- 4 large cloves of garlic, crushed
- 6 all spice berries, ground
- 1 1/14 tsp cumin
- 1 tbsp dried cilantro
I whisked this all up, dumped it over the steak in a Ziploc bag, and put it in the fridge. We’ll see how it turns out and if my efforts were worth it.
