In a large bowl, whisk together lime zest and juice, orange zest and juice, olive oil, garlic, onion, oregano, cumin, salt and pepper. Reserve and refrigerate 1/2 cup of the marinade to drizzle over grilled steaks. 

Add steaks to the bowl with remaining marinade, cover and refrigerate for at least 1 hour or overnight. 

Prepare a grill or grill pan for medium-high heat cooking. Grill steaks, flipping halfway through, for 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare.

Transfer steaks to a platter and drizzle with reserved marinade. Cover loosely with foil and let rest for 10 minutes. Serve steaks on individual plates or sliced on a platter, garnished with lime wedges.
