  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. Preheat your fire to high temperature (around 400F) for direct grilling.
  4. 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.
  5. Slice your steaks, garnish with cilantro plus limes and serve with the Pineapple Cilantro Puree on the side. Enjoy!
