“A spicy chili-flavored rub is used to add depth and complexity to grilled flank steak. Top with cool and creamy avocado salsa, roll up in a warm corn tortilla, and you have a wonderful summer meal. Serve with a leafy green salad and cilantro-lime rice to round out the menu.” - by jensenly
Original recipe yields 4 servings
- Place the avocados, onion, tomato, garlic, and cilantro into a mixing bowl. Season with 1 teaspoon cumin, 2 teaspoons red pepper flakes, lime juice, and olive oil. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and stir gently until evenly combined; set aside.
- Preheat an outdoor grill for medium-high heat, and lightly oil the grate. Combine the kosher salt, 2 tablespoons cumin, 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper, ground black pepper, coriander, chili powder, and cinnamon in a bowl; set aside.
- Dry the flank steak with paper towels, and rub the spice mixture onto both sides. Cook on the preheated grill until the flank steak starts to firm, and is reddish-pink and juicy in the center, about 4 minutes per side. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Remove the steak from the grill, cover with aluminum foil, and let rest 5 minutes before slicing against the grain. Arrange onto a platter, and top with salsa to serve.

"Holy guacamole Batman! This was a GREAT meal! I actually followed the recipe to a "T" no substitutions (which I almost NEVER do) and this was AWESOME! Got rave reviews from the finicky teenage boys..." See more-- apparently we will be eating this a lot more!!"
"GREAT recipe! I couldnt' find flank steak at my grocery store so I used Chuck Eye Round Steak. It worked out wonderfully. The salsa this recipe makes is soooo good! I was eating it by itself, then..." See more got the chips out to dip in it. It makes quite a bit - good thing. I served it with rice and salad but plan on making it for steak tacos next. Great recipe!"
