A steak for our meat eating Med Helpers--Easy!

From eating well d o t com

Any cut of steak will work for this recipe, but they especially liked the flavor and texture of rib-eye with these seasonings; look for steak that has been thinly cut.  Sweet potato fries and a nice salad rounds it out.  
Makes 2 servings

ACTIVE TIME: 20 minutes

TOTAL TIME: 20 minutes


8 ounces 1/2-inch-thick steaks, such as rib-eye, trimmed of fat and cut into 2 portions
1 teaspoon chili powder
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
2 plum tomatoes, diced
2 teaspoons lime juice
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

1. Sprinkle both sides of steak with chili powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and cook, turning once, 1 to 2 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer the steaks to a plate, cover with foil and let rest while you make the salsa.
2. Add tomatoes, lime juice and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to the pan and cook, stirring often, until the tomatoes soften, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in cilantro and any accumulated juices from the steaks. Serve the steaks topped with the salsa.

I think I'm slowly becoming a vegetarian, because the sweet potato and black bean  recipe sounds better than this one.
This is my rebellious dinner tonight.
With skinny mashed potatoes, and a HUGE salad.
A nice cut of yellowfin tuna would also work well in this recipe.
Go for it, Peek!
Swampy, I am completely disheveled and unkempt again today.  If I had a nice cut of tuna, I would do it despite all the people who would write and caution me about the mercury levels.

But procuring a nice cut of yellowfin tuna would require me to shower, and dress.  Neither of which are on the agenda today.

More Hills watching to be done, while I seethe with anger at the universe.  

I have discussed with Gloria (wanna) my plans for late tonight.  I'm going to see if Mr. Creepy is busy.
Oh boy... does that ever sound good !!!!   By the by... are you going to making another trip to NC this summer/fall??

Flank Steak Pinwheels Recipe
Prep Time: 20 mins
Cook Time: 8 mins
Rest Time: 15 mins
Total Time: 43 mins
2/3 cup(s) tomato(es), sun-dried, (not packed in oil)
2 cup(s) water, boiling
1 pounds beef, flank steak, trimmed of fat
1 clove(s) garlic, minced
3 tablespoon cheese, spreadable, herb-flavored, light, such as Boursin
1 cup(s) spinach, baby
3/4 teaspoon salt, Kosher
1/2 teaspoon pepper, black ground
1. Preheat grill to high.
2. Place sun-dried tomatoes in a bowl; pour boiling water over them and let steep until softened, about 10 minutes. Drain and chop.
3. Meanwhile, place steak between 2 large pieces of plastic wrap. Pound each side of the steak thoroughly with the pointed side of a meat mallet until the steak is an even 1/4-inch thickness.
4. Rub garlic all over one side of the steak. Spread cheese lengthwise in a 3-inch-wide strip down the middle of the steak. Top with the sun-dried tomatoes and spinach. Starting at one edge of a long side, roll the steak up tightly, tucking in the filling as you go.
5. Carefully rub salt and pepper all over the outside of the steak roll. Turn the roll so the overlapping edge is on top. Push 8 skewers, evenly spaced, through the roll, close to the overlapping edge to hold the roll together. Slice the roll into 8 equal portions, roughly 1 to 1 1/2 inches thick, with a skewer in each. Lay the slices on their sides and push the skewer through so it sticks out about 1 inch.
6. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the pinwheels 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Use a spatula when turning them to prevent too much filling from falling out. (Don't worry if the ends of the skewers burn. They will still hold the pinwheels together.) Remove the skewers; let the pinwheels rest for 5 minutes before serving.
