Too many limes… What to make?

I love a good piece of steak.  Sometimes all you really need is just a little bit of salt and pepper, but I had tons of limes in my fridge so decided to use it as the marinade for my skirt steak.  The steak was soaking in the goodness for 24 hours so as you can imagine, the steak was bursting with flavor.  It’s amazing what marinade can do to change the flavor and even texture of a piece of meat.  I’ve also started marinating my meats BEFORE I put them in the freezer.  This makes it much easier when I’m actually ready to cook it and the flavor is just unbelievable.  It’s worth spending the extra 30 minutes after a trip to the grocery store to portion your meats, marinate, and freeze!

Bjorn gives this – 2 thumbs up.  No words to share…. was too busy stuffing his face. 🙂
