Now that the weather is getting warmer, we are hoping to grill more. To me nothing is better than a perfectly seasoned, grilled piece of flank steak! Ever since I have been doing the 21 day fix I have been searching out meal ideas from Pinterest and other places on the internet. I don’t usually follow anyone else’s recipes. I like to make each recipe my own and I pretty much wing it whether it be changing up ingredients and using things that I know my family will like in place of their ingredients. I did that with this really flavorful flank steak and mango salsa! If you like a little heat and lots of flavor then this is definitely for you! Besides it is so easy to toss together!!
Ingredients: (Marinade for steak)
2 Tablespoons Garlic Chili paste
2 tablespoons avocado oil
1 tablespoon black peppercorns, crushed
1 tablespoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon coarse sea salt
1 lime (juiced)
2 lbs flank steak
Mixed above ingredients together well in a small bowl and stir together well. Coat flank steak with the marinade. I like to put it in a zip top bag and massage it in the steak till every inch is covered, then lay flat and refrigerate for a minimum of 30 minutes.
Next is to make the sweet & spicy mango salsa to top the steak with.
Ingredients: (for the salsa)
1 large ripe mango (peeled, seeded and diced)
1/4 cup fresh cilantro (chopped)
2 tablespoons fresh squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon garlic chili paste
1 clove garlic (minced)
1/2 Red onion (Diced)
1/2 Jalapeno (seeded and minced)
Mix all the salsa ingredients in a bowl, cover and refrigerate until ready to serve.
Grill your steak and top with the mango salsa!! I served ours on this night with some roasted sweet potatoes and buttered corn. This will definitely be in our rotation of meals for the summer!!
