Broiled Flank Steak with Spicy Orange-Chipotle Marinade
The deep flavors of this marinade—which combines smoky chipotle peppers with orange juice, ketchup, and allspice—are well suited to strongly flavored meats, such as the flank steak here, but you could also try it on duck or lamb brochettes.
1 teaspoon grated orange zest
1/3 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons ketchup
3 chipotle peppers in adobo, minced
1 teaspoon adobo sauce from can
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon salt
2 pounds flank steak
1 In a medium bowl, stir together orange zest, orange juice, ketchup, chipotles, adobo sauce, olive oil, allspice, and salt.
2 Place flank steak in shallow bowl, pour marinade over, and toss to coat. Refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to overnight.
3 Preheat broiler. Place steak on broiler pan and broil 5" from heat for 10 minutes. Brush with any remaining marinade and broil another 5 minutes, or until medium-rare. Place on a carving board and let rest 15 minutes before slicing.
