Grilled Southwestern Steak and Vegetables 

Ingredients

  • 1 beef Top Round Steak, cut 1 inch thick (about 1-1/2 pounds)

Marinade:

  • 1/4 cup fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup prepared mild salsa
  • 1 tablespoon chopped garlic
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse grind black pepper

Colorful Vegetables:

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 medium green or red bell pepper, cut into 1/4 inch strips
  • 8 ounces button mushrooms, sliced 1/4- inch thick

  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon coarse grind black pepper
  • 1 cup finely chopped tomatoes

Instructions

1. Combine marinade ingredients in small bowl. Place beef steak and marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.

2. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 12 to 14 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 16 to 19 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) doneness, turning once. Do not overcook.

3. Meanwhile prepare Colorful Vegetables. Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in large non-stick skillet over medium- high heat. Add bell pepper strips; cook and stir 1 to 2 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add mushrooms, zuchini, cumin, salt and black pepper; cook and stir 3 to 4 minutes or until crisp-tender. Add tomato and green onion; cook and stir 1 minute.

4. Carve steak into thin slices; season with salt, as desired. Serve with Colorful Vegetables.
