- Combine lemon juice, onion, garlic, cumin, black pepper, and steak in a large plastic zippered bag, and shake to coat steaks. Let marinate at room temperature for 30 minutes (or overnight, and take out of refrigerator 30 minutes before grilling).
- Preheat outdoor grill (or use an indoor grill or stovetop grill pan). Remove the steaks from the marinade and sprinkle with salt. Sear steaks over high heat for 1 minute on each side. Then reduce heat to medium to medium-high, and grill about 4-6 minutes per side, depending on thickness of steak and desired degree of doneness.
