I am going to post two favorite recipes here. I do not have pictures, I'm sorry, but this is a fill-in, so there was no way for me to make these before posting. Make one, make both.
In addition to your comments, etc., I want pictures!
Southwestern Flank Steak with Triple Fruit Salsa
Prep Time: 10 Minutes
Marinate: 8 Hours
Cook Time: 16 Minutes
1 and 1/2 lb. flank steak
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tbsp. chili sauce
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tbsp. vegetable oil (I use canola)
1 tsp. honey
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 and 1/2 tsp. grated orange rind
2 tbsp. chili powder
1/2 tsp. salt
1/4 tsp. ground red pepper
1 medium-size orange, thinly sliced
Garnishes: orange wedges, fresh cilantro sprigs
Method (because Querty uses that )
Score steak diagonally across the grain at 1-inch intervals. Place steak in a heavy-duty Ziploc bag or large shallow dish; set aside.
Combine orange juice and next 9 ingredients (everything down to the orange); pour over steak. Place orange slices over steak. Seal or cover, and marinate in fridge for 8 hours, turning occasionally.
Remove steak from marinade, discarding the marinade. Grill steak, covered with grill lid, over medium-hot coals (350 to 400 degrees) 7 to 8 minutes on each side or to disired doneness. Let stand 5 minutes. To serve, slice steak diagonally across the grain into thin slices. Serve with Triple-Fruit Salsa.
Prep Time: 15 Minutes
Chill: 8 Hours
1 cup diced fresh pineapple or canned pinapple tidbits, undrained
1 cup chopped fresh papaya or mango
1 kiwi, peeled and chopped
3/4 cup diced sweet red pepper
3 tbsp. minced fresh cilantro
1 and 1/2 tbsp. sugar
2 and 1/2 tbsp. white wine vinegar
1/4 to 1/2 tsp. dried crushed red pepper
Combine all ingredients in a small bowl, tossing gently. Cover and chill up to 8 hours. Let stand at room temp. before serving.

Lone Star Steakhouse Sweet Bourbon Salmon
1/4 cup pineapple juice
2 tbsp. soy sauce
2 tsp. brown sugar
1 tsp. bourbon
1/4 tsp. cracked black pepper
1/8 tsp. garlic powder
1/2 cup veg. oil
2 tsp. fresh snipped chives
Salmon (or Chicken if you are not a seafood fan)
Combine pineapple juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, bourbon, pepper and garlic powder in a bowl. Stir to dissolve sugar, add oil.
Remove skin from salmon. Marinate salmon at least an hour. Save some marinade for cooking.
Preheat grill over med/high heat.
Cook salmon on each side 5-7 minutes, brushing with marinade while cooking.
This goes very well with baked sweet potatoes with brown sugar and butter, and a salad.
