  1. In a medium-size, non-reactive bowl, zest a teaspoon of orange and lime, then squeeze the juice from each.
  2. Add the chopped herbs, garlic, and cumin, season with salt and pepper.
  3. Marinate the flank steak in the mixture covered until it comes to room temperature.
  4. Light coals and when ready, pile on one side of BBQ.
  5. Remove the steak from the marinade and pat dry, then remove to a platter.
  6. When coals are just about ready, bring the remaining marinade to a boil in a small fry pan over direct heat. Move pan so marinade simmers and stir frequently to reduce, about 5 minutes.
  7. Place steaks over direct heat and grill to preferred doneness. 
  8. Slice steak and pour the reduced marinade over meat.
  9. Eat!
