Flank Steak Bites


1 to 2 pounds marinated flank steak

1 head butter lettuce

1/2 cup mozzarella cheese

12-18 cheery tomatoes-sliced

1/2 cup Jalapeno cilantro Spread by Mezzetta

Jalapeno cilantro Sauce is store bought and delicious.  This spread uses jalapenos for just the right punch of heat while cilantro and garlic round out the flavor. The Mexican-style cheese lends a creamy texture.

Flank steak marinade:

1 cup red wine vinegar infused with garlic

1 cup olive oil

half a lime, squeezed


Heat grill and cook for 5 to 6 minutes on each side, depending on thickness.  For medium rare, cook for 4 minutes on each side with thinner pieces.  Remove from grilled an slice into bite-sized pieces.   Cut lettuce into cup like pieces and top with steak, tomato, jalapeno cilantro sauce and cheese. 

Montreal Steak Seasoning

Rub steak with dry seasoning first.  Transfer to a zip-lock bag and add remaining liquids.  Marinate for at least 2 hours. Take out of fridge 30 minutes before grilling. 

Another option pictured above is a flank steak salad.  This contains the same ingredients as the bites, in addition to avocado.
