  • Add all the ingredients for the Spiced Habanero Marinade to the blender. Blend until smooth. Add your flank steak to a food safe bowl or bag along with the marinade. Mix thoroughly then place in the fridge for at least 4 hours but ideally overnight.
  • The next day, add your ingredients for the Pineapple Cilantro Puree to a blender and blend until smooth. Place in the fridge until ready to use.
  • Preheat your fire to high temperature (around 400F) for direct grilling.
  • Pull your steaks out from the fridge and discard leftover marinade. Add steaks to the grill and cook for about 6-7 minutes per side or until the internal temperature is 125F internal. Once done, pull the steaks off and rest for 5-7 minutes.
  • Slice your steaks, garnish with cilantro plus limes and serve with the Pineapple Cilantro Puree on the side. Enjoy!
