There's nothing quite like that time of year when the weather starts warming up and you can walk through your neighborhood and smell the the smoky flavors of the grill. I use the grill virtually year-round and I am always looking for rubs and marinades to tenderize and flavor different types of meat. Well look no further - I have created the perfect marinade with the help of Williams-Sonoma's Spicy Chipotle Rub. But it doesn't stop there. I add fresh lime and orange juices, garlic, and chopped cilantro to create a Latin-inspired marinade that is still versatile enough to incorporate into any grilling feast. It makes any meat juicy and tender and is packed with flavor. This recipe is great on chicken, beef or shrimp. It's quick and easy and if you don't have a Williams-Sonoma in your area you can order the rub online.




  • 2 Tablespoons Spicy Chipotle Rub
  • Juice of 1/2 orange
  • Juice of 2-3 limes
  • 1 clove minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro

Steak recipe:

Take 1 1-2 pound flank or skirt steak and place in a gallon freezer bag. Pour in rub powder and make sure all meat is coated evenly. Add remaining ingredients for marinade and work meat in bag to make sure all the ingredients are fully incorportated. Let sit up to 1 hour at room temperature or marinate in the refrigerator up to 24 hours. Cook steak on a hot grill and let rest before slicing.
