Cilantro-lime marinade

Cilantro and lime pair very well to marinade some thin steak for tacos.  This marinade was awesome and was a great use of a lot of cilantro I had acquired from the harvest basket.  I will keep this post short and sweet and to the point.

  • handfuls of cilantro, don't worry too much about stems, but do try to pick the bunches towards the top.
  • 1 garlic clove
  • juice of one lime
  • 2 tbsp honey
  • 1 tsp of chili powder
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/3 cup olive oil 


 Blend the cilantro and garlic in a blender or food processor.  Add in the lime juice, honey, chili powder and salt and pepper, blend for a bit longer, then add in the olive oil and pulse a bit to combine.  Pour the marinade over the meat and marinate for no less than an hour, optimally 3-4 hours.  Enjoy!
