"You'll find that every Spanish speaking country has a different version of this, as every English speaking country has a different version of BBQ..."

So here is Carne Asada a la Tampiquena*:

1 top sirloin steak (about 20 ounces)
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1/2 teaspoon ground oregano
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1/4 cup orange juice
1 tablespoon lime juice
2 teaspoon cider vinegar

Rub oil all over the steak. sprinkle with salt pepper and oregano (both sides). Combine the juices and the vinegar and marinate the steak overnight, or at least 8 hours. Bring the steak to room temp before grilling. Reserve the marinade. Heat the coals to very hot and place the steak on the grill. Cook 3-4 minutes per side for medium, basting frequently with the reserved marinade. Serve with corn on the cob, refried beans, lots of corn tortillas and lime halves for squeezing... Buen Provecho!"

*Lisa's note: I couldn't help myself, I know it is not authentic, but I added some crushed garlic to the marinade.
