  • 1 lb. of steak cut into strips
  • Zest and juice of 1 lemon 1 orange and 1 lime
  • 1 Tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 or 3 garlic cloves minced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper


  1. Put the steak strips in a large bowl.
  2. Add the zest and juice of the citrus fruit, olive oil, garlic, salt, smoked paprika and pepper. Stir the ingredients thoroughly.
  3. Let marinate in the refrigerator, covered, for at least 30-60 minutes for best results. Stir once or twice as it’s marinating.
  4. When ready to cook, heat a skillet over medium-high heat and add about half the steak. If it gets overcrowded it won’t brown. I cooked about 1.5 minutes on each side for medium.
  5. Repeat with the rest of the meat.
