1 pound grass-fed flank, skirt, or strip steak (about 1/2-inch-thick)
1/4 cup fresh orange juice
2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
2 teaspoons adobo seasoning
2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
1 garlic clove, chopped
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
For the salad
2 ears shucked corn
Olive oil cooking spray
1 cup chopped peeled jícama, cut into 1/2-inch cubes
Juice of 1/2 lime
12 ounces baby spinach leaves, washed and dried
1/2 cup diced bottled roasted red peppers
1 diced peeled avocado
1 ounce queso fresco, crumbled
Fresh cilantro, for garnish
How to Make It
Place steak in shallow dish. Whisk together next 5 ingredients (through garlic). Pour marinade over steak, and coat both sides. Cover; refrigerate 1 hour.
Prepare medium-high grill, or set grill pan over medium-high heat. Coat corn with cooking spray; grill about 5 minutes or until well-marked on all sides. Remove from grill, and let cool. Cut kernels from ears with a sharp knife; set aside.
Remove steak from marinade, season both sides with salt. Grill 2–3 minutes per side or until internal temperature reaches 145° (for medium rare). Transfer to cutting board; let rest 5 minutes before slicing.
Toss jícama with lime juice. Put spinach in a large bowl. Add roasted peppers, reserved corn, jícama, avocado, and queso fresco. Toss with bottled Southwestern-style dressing (or our Roasted Poblano Dressing; get the recipe at Health.com/poblano).
Thinly slice steak against the grain. Divide salad among 4 plates, arranging steak on top. Sprinkle with cilantro; serve.
This dish was absolutely amazing. The steak was tender and juicy. I would make this again for a picnic. I omitted the jicama and queso fresco since what I had was no longer good. I instead used a mexican cheese blend. I also forgot to use the dressing and decided it was so much better without it since the avocado and juices from the meat made an excellent one.
