We've made this twice as written except using skirt steak, and LOVE it. When I mix the salsa ingredients together it comes out looking more like guacamole than the nice neat cubes that the picture would indicate, but it tastes awesome so no complaints here!

Fresh tarragon offers an unexpected but delightful flavor to the salsa. Serve as a simple entrée or as soft tacos with warmed corn tortillas.
Yield: 6 servings (serving size: about 3 ounces steak and about 2 tablespoons salsa)
