  1. Combine cumin, garlic powder, paprika, chili powder, onion powder, salt, pepper, and cayenne; mix well and set spice mix aside.
  2. Combine soy sauce, brown sugar, orange juice, and lime juice, and mix well; set marinade aside.
  3. Add 3 tablespoons of the spice mix to the marinade and whisk to combine. Add steak and seal bag, removing excess air. Marinate in the refrigerator 4 hours up to overnight.
  4. When ready to grill, mix remaining spice mix with 2 tablespoons olive oil to create a spice rub.
  5. Discard marinade and pat steaks dry with a paper towel (just so steak is not wet, not to remove marinade/spices). Rub steak evenly all over with Spice Rub and let rest at room temperature for 30-60 minutes.
  6. Grease and preheat grill to medium-high heat. Grill steak for 7 to 10 minutes per side, turning once, for medium-rare. For medium or medium well, continue cooking steak over indirect flame for an additional 5-10 minutes per side, depending on thickness.
  7. Remove steak and let rest 10 minutes before thinly slicing against the grain on a diagonal.
