Soy Marinated Beef Sticks with Cilantro Lime Sour Cream

I am an increasingly big fan of anything marinated.  I work part time, but the 3 days I do work, when I get home, I don't want to think about dinner.  Marinated beef, chicken, what have you- it make life easy. I look for marinades with minimal citrus (marinate chicken n lemon juice and you get rubber chicken).  Then I marinate on sunday and cook later in the week.  Easy, flavorful, more healthful than take out for sure.  I loved the cilantro lime source cream on these.  The beef itself also had a nice flavor.
