How to make it
- In a skillet over med heat, roast mustard, cumino, coriander and fennel seeds. apprx 4-5min, stirring constantly.
- remove skillet from heat and add...
- onion powder, oregano, black pepper, salt and paprika. mix well with other ingredients in the skillet.
- in a blender, puree chipoltes, bay leaves, garlic, lemon juice and olive oil.
- add pureed ingredients to the skillet and mix well.
- marinate steak for 1 hr.
- remove steak from the marinade. set aside and fire up the grill.
- pour remaining marinade back into the skillet and bring to a full boil. you can now use this as a mopping sauce for the steak as it grills.
- grill on high heat for a couple of minutes each side. use mopping sauce as desired.
- let the steak rest for 10 min before slicing in strips across the grain.
- serve with grilled onions, bell peppers and pico de gallo on flour tortillas.
- i like to set aside a few Tbsp of the marinade to use on the onions and bell peppers. just saute until soft using extra olive oil as needed.
