If you're looking for a great steak dinner without breaking the bank, try marinating an inexpensive cut of meat. This marinade imparts a vibrant flavor with a distinctly Latin influence. Serve grilled onions and peppers alongside the steak.From the book "Mad Hungry," by Lucinda Scala Quinn (Artisan Books).

Thanks so much for this wonderful recipe. I had fun making it with my husband and enjoyed it for two days. It was even better the second day. Keep it up. Love, love, love the show.
