Marinade

½ can (12 oz.) chipotle chiles, chopped

2 cloves garlic, minced

½ cup fresh lime juice

Sauce

½ cup honey

1 tbsp. peanut butter

1 to 3 chipotle peppers – depending on preference

2 tbsp. balsamic vinegar

¼ cup fresh lime juice

2 cloves garlic, pressed or minced

1 tsp. ground cumin

2 tbsp. fresh chopped cilantro

1 tsp. salt

Freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Instructions

1. Place steak in large non-metallic baking dish.

2. Mix marinade ingredients together then pour marinade over the steak. Turn steak over, making sure the marinade completely coats both sides. Cover and allow to marinate in the refrigerator for 2 to 4 hours, turning occasionally. Because of the lime juice in the marinade, no not allow steak to marinate any longer than four hours.

3. To make the sauce, combine the honey, peanut butter, chiles, vinegar, mustard, lime juice, garlic, and cumin in blender or food processor and puree until smooth. Stir in chopped cilantro and salt and pepper to taste.

4. Lightly salt and pepper steak. Over high heat, grill steak for 5 to 7 minutes on each side until a meat thermometer inserted into the thickest part of steak registers 130° for medium rare. You can also broil steak in the oven for 5 to 7 minutes per side.

5. Remove steak from grill and let it rest 4 minutes, allowing juices to redistribute. Using a sharp knife, slice the steak as thin as you can, against the grain at a sharp angle.

6. Serve steak with 1 to 2 tablespoons of sauce.
