    1. In a small bowl, combine shallots, chives, garlic, lime juice, soy sauce, brown sugar, salt and black pepper. Pour into large resealable plastic bag. Add steak to plastic bag. Place in refrigerator and marinate for 30 to 60 minutes, turning bag occasionally.
    2. Prepare a charcoal or gas grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. Add cast iron skillet to grill to preheat.
