  1. In a small bowl combine lime juice, orange juice, olive oil, garlic, jalapeno, cumin, chili powder, salt, pepper and ¾ cup cilantro. Mix well. Put steak and the marinade into a zip lock bag and let the steak marinate in the refrigerator for a few hours.
  2. Remove the steak from the marinade. Lightly grease the grates of an outdoor grill. Heat the grill to medium-high heat. Place the steak onto the grill and cook until it has reached your desired doneness (medium-rare preferred).
  3. Remove the steak from the grill and let it rest for a few minutes. Slice the steak against the grain into thin strips. Warm the tortillas according to package directions. Place some of the steak into the tortillas (use two tortillas per taco), top with cheese, cilantro, onion and a squeeze of lime.
