1 cup (1 bunch) fresh cilantro, packed
2 garlic cloves
3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
1 tablespoon grated lime rind
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1/4 to 1/2 teaspoon ground red pepper
2 pounds top sirloin steak (1 1/4 inches thick)

Process first 7 ingredients in a food processor or blender until blended, and rub cilantro mixture over sirloin steak. Chill 2 hours.

Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 10 to 12 minutes on each side or to desired degree of doneness. Let stand 10 minutes.

Cut steak diagonally across the grain into thin strips. Serve with Zesty Corn Salsa; garnish, if desired.
