Flank Steak with Avocado Salsa

Directions

  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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-- apparently we will be eating this a lot more!!

Was not a fan of the cinnamon but it was still pretty good. Will make this recipe again with either less cinnamon or none at all and see how that is.

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 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!

This was very good! I love flank steak and this was a pretty good rub. I did think that the cinnamon seemed to stand out the most once it was cooked. The avocado salsa was delicious and I will definitely make that again:)

We made this but turned it into steak tacos and topped them with the Avocado Salsa and some cheese. They were sooooooo Good! 5 Stars!

I made this for dinner tonight, and it was SOO yummy! My boyfriend and I both love spicy, so I upped the amount of red pepper flakes in both the rub and the salsa. We decided to make steak tacos out of this, and thinly sliced the steaks, and ate them on flour tortillas with the salsa on top, and fresh baby greens. This is a recipe I will totally make again!
