Note, for high quality Wagyu or Prime Hanger steak, I don’t recommend using a marinade, just freshly ground pepper and high quality sea salt will do. For Choice Hanger steak, definitely use a marinade. This Cilantro lime marinade is great on hanger steak, skirt steak or flank steak and makes for great fajitas, tacos or sliced and put into a pita. Hanger steak is great served on its own served as a steak. I often pair mine with blue cheese before serving.
- 2 hanger steaks
- 1/3 cup soy sauce
- 1/4 cup fresh chopped cilantro
- 2 tbsp lime zest
- 1 tbsp lime juice (the juice of one medium sized lime)
- 4 tsp fish sauce
- 1 1/2 tsp dark brown sugar
- 1 tsp avocado oil
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
Puree all marinade ingredients (soy sauce, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice, fish sauce, oil, sugar and garlic) with a hand mixer or food processor until it forms a paste.
Combine marinade and beef in a non-reactive container and marinate in the refrigerator for 4 hours.
Prepare a grill for 2 zone grilling- direct and indirect zones. Sear on high heat (400 degrees plus) for a minute and a half and then temp the meat. If the meat has not reached 125 degrees yet, let it continue to roast/cook on indirect until it reads 125 degrees with an internal read thermometer such as the Thermapen. Tent under foil for 10 minutes and slice against the grain before serving.
