There was a similar marinade recipe in an ad in the May '05 CL that included 2tbs Montreal Steak Seasoning -- so being cautious I added just 1tbs to this recipe. This was really great, though I'm sure it pushed the sodium count way over the limit. Liked the orange-olive relish and the recommended simple black beans. A little reminder of the Caribbean on a very yucky winter evening.
Flank Steak with Chunky Mojo Relish
Mojo is a garlicky, citrusy Caribbean sauce. Garnish the steak with lime wedges and mint and serve with a side of black beans.
