Flank Steak with Mango, Avocado Salsa

From my friend Seth at The Refined Chef, this recipe for Grilled Flank Steak is perfect for a special occasion dinner.  Enjoy!

Ingredients

1/2 lb flank or skirt steak
1 mango
1 avocado
1 small red onion
1 bunch cilantro
1 lime
salt and pepper

Servings- 2

Preparation Time- 10 minutes
Cooking Time- Approximately 12 minutes

Directions for Grilled Flank Steak with Mango and Avocado Salsa

Salsa:

Cut avocado and mango into small cubes

Finely dice onion

Chop 1 tablespoon fresh cilantro

Combine ingredients in mixing bowl

Squeeze 1/2 lime into salsa

Add salt and pepper to taste

Lightly toss, cover and refrigerate while cooking steak

Flank Steak:

Salt and pepper to taste (note flank steak is also great for marinating and if you do carne asade or a tropical marniade that will work well)

Preheat grill (or grill pan)

I used a grill pan and finished cooking in the oven.  If you do this, preheat oven to 425F degrees.

Grill steak 4 minutes per side

Finish in the oven until desired doneness, a meat thermometer is perfect for this. I like medium-rare for this dish.

Allow to rest 5 minutes before cutting.  This is important so the juices don’t run out.

To Serve:

With a ring mold (or cut the top off a plastic cup) spoon salsa mixture onto plate
Cut meat against the grain into thin slices
Layer meat on top of salsa
Garnish with lime wedge and springs of cilantro
