  • 1 beef Skirt Steak (1 to 1-1/2 pounds), cut into 4 to 6-inch portions
  • 1/2 cup fresh orange juice
  • 1/3 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons dried Mexican seasoning, crushed
  • 3/4 cup dairy sour cream
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
  • Salt and pepper


  1. Combine orange juice, cilantro and Mexican seasoning in small bowl. Place beef steak and 1/3 cup orange juice mixture in food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.

  2. Combine remaining orange juice mixture with sour cream and green onion. Cover and refrigerate until ready to serve. (May be refrigerated as long as overnight.)

  3. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 7 to 12 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 8 to 12 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.

  4. Carve steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices; season with salt and pepper, as desired. Serve with citrus sauce.
