Paleo Flank Steak with Grilled Pineapple Salsa

PineappleAnother winner! I am on a roll. This one is easy and would be great to make up the salsa ahead of time and bring to a BBQ on a nice summer day. This can really go over anything, and would probably be really good on some fish too!

Ingredients:

* 1 lb Beef Flank Steak (I did a 1 1/2 lbs, smallest I could find!)
* Marinade of your choice. (I just marinated mine in a little soy sauce and honey, salt and pepper. yes I realize soy isnt 100% paleo, so marinate how you like!)
* 5-6 slices of pineapple. You can use canned pinapple, I had some fresh slices from good ol’ Trader Joes
* 1 large red bell pepper, diced
* 1/2 red onion, diced
* a big bunch of cilantro chopped up. I won’t say how much because the more the better in my opinion!
* Juice of one lime

I made the salsa first and then grilled my steak. I guess you could do either way, but if you do the steak first just make sure not to cut it for about 10 minutes.

1. Grill your pineapple rings or slices for about 2-3 minutes on each side until nice and tender

2. Cut the pineapple into small chuncks and place into medium sized bowl.

3. Add your diced red pepper, red onion, cilantro, and lime juice. Mix together and let sit while you cook your steak.

4. Grill your steak for about 5 minutes on one side, and then about 3 minutes on the other side. Mine was a tad bigger so I turned it over a few times.

5. Remove to a plate and let sit about 10 minutes. Slice into thin slices, add your pineapple salsa on top of your slices and enjoy!!

(UPDATE! If you have leftovers and aren’t super paleo strict… buy the pizza dough from Trader Joe’s and this makes a perfect leftover pizza. Just spread out the pizza dough, some pizza sauce, add the leftovers with the steak chopped up, and bake for 15 mins. Best leftover meal there is!)

(I hope you all enjoy my new and improved pictures of the meals…I was told they may sound delicious but some pics make the meals look like blobs of food!)

Mango Avocado jalapeño salad

20120708-224151.jpg

Made this tonight along with the coconut shrimp again. I knew that was going to be a 2 day in a row dish! Was a great side dish and can’t wait for seconds after I’m done writing this!

Ingredients:

  • 4 small mangos or 3 large mangos
  • 3 avocados (not too soft)
  • 1 small red onion
  • 1 jalapeño
  • Sea salt and pepper to taste
  • Cilantro
  • Baby spinach

Dressing:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh squeeze lime

Cut the mangos into strips and the avocados into cubes. Take a bunch of cilantro and chop, just not too fine, add to mango and avocados. Take the jalapeño and scrape the seeds out. Cut into tiny little pieces and add to salad. Cut your onion into small pieces as well, add to salad. Sprinkle with a little salt and pepper but not much because the dressing gives a great flavor and kick.

Combine the olive oil, balsamic, and lime and mix together until creamy smooth.

Put a handful or two of spinach leaves on your plate, add the mango salad, then top with balsamic dressing. Serve alone or with any dish you like. So fresh and good!
