Strip steaks are tender and full of flavor, so they're a great choice for broiling or grilling. One steak will generally weigh about 8 ounces when purchased raw because it's a long, thick cut of meat. For portion control, we've called for 2 (8-ounce) steaks cut in half. Serve with grilled corn on the cob.

How to Make It

Step 1

Grate rind and squeeze juice from lime to measure 1 teaspoon and 1 tablespoon, respectively. Combine rind, juice, mint, and rum in a large zip-top plastic bag. Add steak to bag, and seal bag. Marinate in refrigerator 30 minutes, turning occasionally.

Step 2

While steak marinates, prepare Pico de Gallo.

Step 3

Prepare grill.

Step 4

Remove steaks from marinade, discarding marinade. Sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper. Place steaks on a grill rack coated with cooking spray. Grill 2 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Let stand 3 minutes. Cut steak into slices. Serve with Pico de Gallo.

Perfect meal. Quick and easy, and right amount of lime, not to over-powering.
