Step 1:

Make the sauce. In a small bowl, combine cumin, oregano, garlic powder, avocado oil, orange juice, lime, kosher salt, and black pepper. Adjust the amount of seasonings depending on your preference.

Step 2:

Place the meat on a plate and drizzle with avocado oil. Season with salt and pepper on both sides. Heat your grill and grease it. Once hot, grill your seasoned meat. When one side is done, flip it over and baste it with your sauce. Repeat to the other side. Grill until fully cooked over medium-low heat. Internal temperature should be 145F.
