Red Apple Chipotle Sirloin Steak Marinade

For those of you concerned with spiciness, once cooked, this has almost none. BHL

Serves: about 2

Ingredients:

¼ cup Flying Olive Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar

¼ cup Flying Olive Chipotle Extra Virgin Olive Oil, or a spicier Flying Olive EVOO of choice such as Harissa or Cayenne Red Chile

2 Tbsp fresh orange juice

1 tsp dried sage

¼-? Tsp dried chipotle pepper (optional)

1 lb (approximately) of sirloin steak, or steak of choice

Directions:

Mix together the Flying Olive Red Apple Balsamic Vinegar, Chipotle Extra Virgin Olive Oil, orange juice, sage, and, if desired, dried chipotle pepper.  Pour into a zip-lock bag.

Rinse and pat dry sirloin steak.  Add to the marinade.  Close bag and flip a few times to distribute marinade.  Marinade for at least 6-8 hours to up to 24 hours, flipping bag occasionally.

When ready to cook the steak, preheat the grill to high.  Drain marinade from the bag.  Pat off any excess marinade from the steak.  Sear about 3 minutes on each side.  Turn down grill and cook until desired doneness is reached.  Let sit loosely covered with aluminum foil for 10 minutes.  Slice and serve.
