Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 cups drained and rinsed canned black beans (from two 15-ounce cans)
  • 1 cup canned low-sodium chicken broth or homemade stock
  • 2/3 cup canned crushed tomatoes in thick puree
  • 1 7- ounces jar sliced pimentos, drained (2/3 cup)
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 pounds sirloin steak, about 1 inch thick
  • 1/4 teaspoon fresh-ground black pepper

Preparation

  1. 1. In a medium saucepan, heat 1 tablespoon of the oil over moderately low heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until translucent, about 5 minutes. Add the beans, broth, tomatoes, pimentos, bay leaf, and 1/2 teaspoon of the salt. Simmer until thickened, about 20 minutes. Remove the bay leaf.
  2. 2. Light the grill or heat the broiler. Rub the steak with the remaining oil; sprinkle with the remaining salt and the pepper. Grill or broil for 4 minutes. Turn; cook to your taste, about 4 minutes longer for medium-rare. Cut into thin diagonal slices. Top the beans with the steak and sauce.
  3. Serve With: Chimichurri Sauce
  4. Wine Recommendation: This robust dish needs a rollicking red. Go for an all-American Napa, Sonoma, or Amador zinfandel for spiciness and big fruit flavor.
