1 1/2 - 2 pounds flank or skirt steak, pounded thin
2 tablespoons olive oil
1/4 cup reduced sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup orange juice
2 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon brown sugar
1 teaspoon liquid smoke
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 tablespoon garlic powder
2 teaspoons smoked paprika
1 tsp EACH salt, chili pwdr, onion pwdr
1/2 tsp EACH pepper, cayenne pepper
To a small plastic bag (or sealable container), add Spice Mix and whisk to combine. Set aside.
Add Marinade Ingredients to a large freezer bag and whisk to combine. Add 3 tablespoons Spice Mix to Marinade and whisk to combine. Add steak and seal bag, removing excess air. Marinate in the refrigerator 4-12 hours.
When ready to grill, mix remaining Spice Mix with 2 tablespoons olive oil to create a Spice Rub.
Discard marinade and pat steaks dry with paper towel (just so steak is not wet, not to remove marinade/spices). Rub steak evenly all over with Spice Rub and let rest at room temperature for 30-60 minutes.
Grease and preheat outdoor grill to medium-high heat. Grill steak for 7 to 10 minutes per side, turning once, for medium-rare. For medium or medium well, continue cooking steak over indirect flame for an additional 5-10 minutes per side, depending on thickness. *If you like your steaks rare then use HIGH heat so you can get the charred outside in less time.
Remove steak and let rest 10 minutes before thinly slicing against the grain on a diagonal.
