Combine broth, lime juice, chili powder and garlic in large ziploc bag. Add meat and refridgerate for at least 1 hour or overnight. Prepare Cilantro Salsa: In a bowl, combine all ingredients; cover and let stand for 1 hour before serving. Remove steak from bag and cut into strips. Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat; cook steak strips for 5 to 7 minutes or until thoroughly cooked; pepper to taste. Add steak strips and lettuce to pitas and top with cilantro salsa and enjoy! (you can add other optional toppings: sour cream, cheese if you want) I serve black beans on the side.
