Cooking Instructions

Soy Infusion
Bring the soy sauces and Southern Comfort to a boil in a saucepan, then immediately remove from the heat, and stir in remaining ingredients. Set aside to cool, uncovered, at room temperature. Strain through a fine sieve, reserving the liquid.

Cilantro Dressing
Blanch the cilantro in boiling water, shock in a bowl of ice water, then squeeze in a clean towel to remove all liquid. Bring the lemon juice and sugar to a boil in a saucepan, then blanch the zest for 3 minutes in this syrup. Strain, reserving the zest and discarding the syrup. In a blender, purée cilantro, zest, and remaining ingredients until they turn bright green.

Skewers
Thread the steak onto skewers. Brush generously with the soy infusion, sprinkle with salt, and grill over hot to medium-hot coals for 2 minutes on each side. Brush with the cilantro dressing, and serve.
