Let the steak stand while you heat the topping. Fill out the meal with orzo, and garnish with fresh cilantro sprigs, if desired.
1 1/4 teaspoons ground cumin, divided
3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
1/8 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 (1-pound) flank steak, trimmed
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 teaspoon bottled minced garlic
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced (about 1 tablespoon)
2 cups grape or cherry tomatoes, halved
1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
How to Make It
Combine 1 teaspoon cumin, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and red pepper; sprinkle evenly over steak. Place steak on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 10 minutes or until desired degree of doneness, turning once. Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices.
Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and jalapeño to pan; cook 1 minute. Add remaining 1/4 teaspoon cumin, remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, and tomatoes to pan; cook 3 minutes or until tomatoes begin to soften. Remove from heat; stir in cilantro. Serve tomato topping with steak.

This was really good. So good that I'm thinking about it the next morning. I actually roasted the tomatoes first and then was afraid they'd be too dry so I added some fresh tomatoes in and they were all perfect and delicious. The only negative I have is that the meat would be so much better grilled, but then I'm not a huge fan of broiling anyway.
Worthy of a special summer bbq. Bought a more tender cut of beef that was on sale & cooked to medium-rare outdoors, otherwise made to recipe. Plated a piece of grilled red onion, then the sliced beef, then the tomato. Served with simply steamed green beans. Gorgeous presentation, great summer flavors.
I love, love, LOVE the tomato mixture! I like spicy foods, but my jalepeno was a little hotter than usual so this dish was on fire. But, DELICIOUS! I couldn't find flank steak at my grocery store and so I subbed another (probably slightly cheaper) cut, and it was still very good. I would serve this to friends, but with a better cut than is called for. Anyway. So good!
Very good recipe. I slightly over cooked the meat. I cooked for 20 mins as per other reviews suggestions, next time maybe only 15 mins. I added some leftover corn kernels to the tomato and it was really tasty. I served it with a rice pilaf mix.
I made this last night for my husband and a friend of his who stayed for dinner, and the recipe got rave reviews from them! It was easy to make and very good. I served it with orzo mixed with some spinach, as others had suggested. The tomato topping complemented the steak wonderfully. I followed the recipe exactly, only the meat took a little longer to be done.
