Peruvian Superfoods: Grilled Sirloin Steak with Cilantro-Soy Marinade

Sirloin Steak w Cilantro-Soy Marinade

Steak is always the classic favorite at bbq’s and other grilling events during the summer season. Every good cook has different, sometimes secret, ingredients they like to use to make their steaks taste better than the next. Two of the ingredients I use here is cilantro and lime juice, which adds a little Latin flare. Although it is not one of the primary ingredients used in the States, cilantro is a flavorful herb that is used in soups, stews and sauces. Here, I use cilantro and lime juice as part of the marinade to not only add a distinct, zesty flavor but also to add some Peruvian flavor to make the steak that much more mouth-watering.
