Chipotle Lime Grilled Flank Steak Salad
3 (or 4) chipotle peppers, chopped
1 tbsp (or so) chipotle sauce from the peppers
zest of 1 lime
juice of half a lime
1/4 cup olive oil
pinch of salt and pepper
1 flank steak, trimmed of excess fat and connective tissue
salad dressing of your choice
|Chipotle and lime: the perfect combination!|
|The no mess way to mix!!|
Place the bag in the fridge to marinate for the day or overnight.
Heat up the grill and grill your fabulous flank steak for 5 - 6 minutes a side or until medium. Remove to a plate, cover with foil and allow the steak to rest for 5 minutes.
|Give your steak a 1/4 turn half way through cooking to get fabulous grill marks!|
|Slicing across the grain ensures a nice tender steak.|
This really was such a perfect dinner tonight. Tasty protein, lots of veggies....oh so yummy! I think next time I will add some cheese of some sort....
Until next time, stay warm and eat well!
