CILANTRO MARINATED SKIRT STEAK

Are you a cilantro fan? I am a huge cilantro supporter. Love it in guacamole, salads, soups, sauces...
This is, by far, my most favorite meat marinade made with...cilantro!
Even if you think the smell of cilantro makes your stomach turn I dare you to try this marinade. I had so many people surprised that the main ingredient here is cilantro as they absolutely loved the dish even if they usually dislike the taste or smell of cilantro.
And it only takes one minute to make! I love easy peasy oh so breezy recipes that bring the whole family and neighbors to the dinner table just with the simple aroma of the dish.
The first time I made skirt steak with cilantro sauce my house smelled divine and my husband had a very restless night because he kept thinking about the skirt steak leftovers and couldn't fall asleep since his stomach was demanding more thanks to the aroma (that evening I grilled the steak on a stove). And the first question I get when inviting friends for dinner is "will you be making the cilantro meat sauce?" 
Yeah, it is THAT good! Have I convinced you yet?
Cilantro is high in potassium, vitamin Avitamin K, calcium and many more flavonoids, phytonutrients and phenolic compounds.  It can help remove heavy metals from the body and protects against oxidative stress among other health benefits.
