Ingredients

1 beef Skirt Steak (1 to 1-1/2 pounds), cut into 4 to 6-inch portions
1/2 cup fresh orange juice
1/3 cup finely chopped fresh cilantro
2 tablespoons dried Mexican seasoning, crushed
3/4 cup dairy sour cream
2 tablespoons finely chopped green onion
Salt and pepper

Instructions

4. Carve steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices; season with salt and pepper, as desired. Serve with citrus sauce.
