Whisk together oil, vinegar, lime juice, orange juice, garlic, pepper, salt, cumin, chili powder, cloves and cilantro.
Place steak in a zip lock bag or 9x13 dish. Pour marinade over top. Add sliced oranges.
Marinate for at least 30 minutes and up to 1 day.
Preheat grill to 400-500. Remove meat from marinade, place on the grill. Cook for 6-7 minutes per side for medium rare. Adjust times to your preference.
