Complimented with seasoned skewered pineapple chunks, this Caribbean grilled steak boasts a mouthful of flavor at a reasonable price. Marinating even tougher cuts of meat gives it a chance to become tender and delicious!
2 tsp dried minced garlic or 1 Tbs Fresh
1 tsp ground cumin
1 tsp minced dried onion or 1 tbs finely chopped fresh onion
1 tsp Dried Oregano leaves
1/4 tsp crushed red pepper (not ground!)
1 tsp Salt
1 1/2 lbs of Steak - this will tenderize even tougher cuts of cheaper meat.
3 Tbs Olive Oil
1/4 c. Fresh Lime Juice
1 -20 oz Can Pineapple Chunks, drained
In a small bowl combine all the spices, lime juice and olive oil. Reserve a couple tablespoons of mixture in a small bowl for later.
Marinate the steaks for at 30 minutes, but no longer than 8 hours in the mixture.
This is excellent served with a nice salad and the skewers on the side. The grilled pineapple imparts a wonderful tropical flavor with the beef, but can easily be left out if you don't happen to have any on hand.
