Another top round steak!!! How many of these things do we have left in the freezer!!!  We will never be rid of them it seems...  I tossed this one in some citrus juice with a little tequila to loosen up the meat.  Though far from being my favorite cut of meat, it was quite good used in burritos and own its own.

Ingredients:
1 1/2 lb top round steak
1 tbsp butter

Tequila Marinade
1/4 cup lime juice
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup orange juice
1/2 cup tequila
4 garlic cloves crushed
1 medium onion chopped
1 teaspoon black pepper

Rub
kosher salt
fresh crack pepper
cumin 1/4 tsp
oregano 1/4 tsp
1/2 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp chili powder
2 tbsp Brummel and Brown
Marinade
Combine all of the ingredients in a bowl.

Rub
Combine all ingredients and set to side until ready to use.

Steak
Meat hammer both sides of steak until loosened.  Combine the marinade and meat in a resealable plastic bag and refrigerate for 6 to 24 hours, flipping the bag occasionally.

One hour before grilling; remove top round steaks from refrigerator and marinade and massage the rub into the meat.  Sit covered on the counter for 1 hour to bring to room temperature.

Strain the onions and garlic from the marinade.  Hear butter in a small sauce pan over medium heat. Saute onions and garlic in butter for 7-10 minutes or until browning (keep warm until ready to use.)

Preheat grill to medium high.

Place steak directly over flame and cook for 2-3 minutes.  Flip steak and cook for 2-4 minutes.  Remove from heat and cover with foil letting sit for 5-10 minutes before slicing thinly across the grain and serving hot with onions over the top.
