Carne Asada Marinade

This is the best marinade ever!  I just made this this yesterday and finally got to have it for dinner!
  It takes a little work but it's well worth it.  
It makes a lot!
3/4 c. orange juice
1/2 c. lemon juice
1/3 c. lime juice
4 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 c. soy sauce
1 tbsp. chili powder
1 tbsp. ground cumin
1 tbsp. paprika
1 tsp. dried oregano
1 tbsp. black pepper
1 bunch of fresh cilantro, chopped
1/2 c. olive oil
3 lbs. flank steak, sliced

Combine the orange, lemon, and lime juice in a large bowl along with the garlic, soy sauce, chili powder, ground cumin, paprika, oregano, black pepper, and cilantro.  Whisk in the olive oil until marinade is combined.  Remove one cup of marinade, cover and refrigerate for after the meat is cooked.

Fork steak (for the marinade to absorb).  Put steak and marinade in a large 1 gallon freezer bag and allow to marinate for 24 hours.

Preheat grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate.  Grill to desired doneness, about 5 minutes per side for medium rare.  Discard used marinade.  Pour the one cup of reserved, unused marinade over the hot meat and serve.
