1jalapenoseeded and sliced
1lemon lemon zest
½lemon lemon juice
Combine all ingredients except the steaks and place in a food processor, pulse until a paste forms.
Pat the steaks dry and place in a shallow baking dish or rimmed baking pan. Cover and refrigerate for at least 30 minutes or overnight.
When ready to cook, heat the grill to high. Use a paper towel to pat the meat dry leaving on as much paste as possible. Grill over direct heat or under the broiler until they are browned on both sides, about 3-6 minutes per side if 1 to 11/4 inch thick, 6-9 minutes if 2 inches thick. Let rest for 5-10 minutes.
If using dried herbs, use 1/3 cup basil and 2 teaspoons of thyme.
