http://www.cookstr.com/recipes/brazilian-marinated-steaks-with-chile-lime-sauce

Ingredients
4 (1½ inch thick) shell, sirloin, or rib-eye steaks
½ cup freshly squeezed lime juice
1/3 cup dry red wine
1 small onion, finely chopped
4 garlic cloves, finely chopped
2 teaspoons dried oregano
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

Chile Lime Sauce (Makes about 1/2 cup):

5 to 10 preserved malagueta peppers (see Notes), chopped
1 teaspoon coarse salt
1 small white onion, finely diced
4 large garlic cloves, chopped
Juice of 3 limes
½ bunch Italian parsley, leaves only, chopped

Notes: Preserved malagueta peppers are one of the hallmarks of Brazilian cooking. These tiny, extremely hot peppers are pickled in a 2:1 oil to grain alcohol mixture and allowed to sit for 1 month before using. They are available in some Latin American markets, or substitute your favorite pickled hot chiles.
