I'm too tired to cook tonight nite.

Whats more trouble to go change clothes get into the car and go find somewhere to get some no frills eats or just throw something together at home.
Well at least at home I can walk around in old tattered clothes.
Well I can do that to a restaurant too, and maybe they will feel sorry for me, you think?

Here is a less than 5 minute throw together dish that will work great on an old flank steak, even better on a New York or other steaks. Or if you add one other ingredients in the recipe will do wonders for chicken.

Combine all the stuff in a food processor, pulse a couple of times so it has been mixed good, do not over process since that's not good, at least for this recipe.

Toss the steak into a zip lock bag, throw into the refrigerator for at least 2 hours,
then remove from the refrigerator at least one hour before tossing it on the grill or grill pan.

That's it!

Oh, this also make a great salsa to put on meat or fish that you didn't season before cooking, just adjust the amount of oil to your desired consistency!

And here is some totally useless information and a quote from Miguel de Cervantes, the writer of Don Quixote.

La mejor salsa del mundo es la hambre
or to translate it is, Hunger is the best sauce in the world!

Stuff you will need.

One or two portions of steak, or one large flank steak or one or two strips of skirt steak. A New York steak is pictured above.
3 cloves of garlic peeled
1/2 an white onion, chopped roughly
juice from 3 small limes or 2 lemons
1/4 cup vegetable or olive oil
1 large hand full of cilantro rough chop
1 Serrano chili, seed removed rough chop
1/2 tea fresh ground pepper
1 tea Kosher salt
1 TBS Worcestershire sauce (or for a better flavor, toss in 4 or 5 anchovy fillets)
1/2 cup apple cider ( use this only on the chicken)
