Recipe: Cuban Steak

The main feature of a Cuban steak is the seasoning. The grilled steak is seasoned with mojo, a Cuban vinaigrette made with oregano and cumin, as well as lime and orange juice for some zesty flavor.  This Cuban steak perfectly pairs with rice and beans and if you slice leftovers really thin, they go great as a next day lunch!
