cilantro-buttermilk skirt steak... 1 hour

the goods:
1 cup buttermilk
1 bunch cilantro, roughly chopped
1 teaspoon coriander seed
1/2 teaspoon chili powder
3 scallions, roughly chopped
1 pound skirt steak

In a blender, combine buttermilk, cilantro, coriander seed, chili powder, and scallions and puree. Pour half the marinade into a shallow dish, lay steak on top, and cover with rest of marinade; let sit 30 to 45 minutes at room temperature.

Heat grill to medium-high. Clean and lightly oil hot grill. Remove steak from marinade, shaking off excess, and season with salt and pepper. Grill steak until browned, 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes before thinly slicing against the grain.
