- 1/3 cup olive oil
- juice of 2 limes
- juice from 1/2 an orange (optional)
- 2 Tbsp smoked paprika
- 3-inch piece of fresh ginger
- a couple pieces fresh turmeric
- Kosher salt
- Chopped cilantro
- Six cloves garlic, peeled and sliced
- Aleppo pepper
Make the marinade by mixing olive oil, lime juice and orange juice. Then add paprika, stirring till dissolved. Shred and squeeze ginger and turmeric by hand, discard pulp, and add juice to the marinade.
Salt beef thoroughly on both sides. Place snugly in container with half the marinade, then flip and add the remainder of the marinade. Sprinkle with cilantro, garlic and Aleppo pepper and toss again, making sure the meat is covered completely with marinade. Refrigerate covered overnight (but if you have only an hour or two, that’s fine too!).
When you get ready for dinner, pull it out and grill.
