Ingredients

• 4 limes, juiced
• 3 chipotles in adobo sauce
• 3 tbsp. (45 g) brown sugar

3. Remove the steaks and the remaining marinade from the refrigerator 30 minutes prior to grilling.

4. Preheat the grill to high.

5. Remove the steaks from the marinade and season with salt and pepper on both sides.

8. Cut the steaks in half, drizzle with the remaining marinade and serve with the cucumber slaw.
