I made this delicious steak recently, on Christmas Eve for our stay at home boring Jewish Christmas. The meal was surprisingly easy and delicious. The one thing I didn't anticipate was how smoky grilling a chipotle rubbed steak is - it made the kitchen very smoky! The resulting flavor was a little but on the spicy side, but very flavorful and went nicely with the corn and avocado salsa. This would be a great summertime dish made on an outdoor grill as well, although I obviously made it indoors in a grill pan.
Sasha's Chipotle Rubbed Flank Steak with Corn-Avocado Salsa
One 1/2 lb flank steak
2/3 cup orange juice
3 canned chipotle peppers in adobo
2 diced cloves of garlic
2 T olive oil
1 cup corn
2 avocados, peeled and chopped
1 T lime juice
1/2 small jalapeno pepper, seeded and diced
1/4 cup minced red onion
In a blender, combine the chipotle peppers, orange juice, olive oil and garlic and puree. Marinate the steak for ten minutes. Remove the steak from the marinade and let the excess drip off but don't wash off the marinade. Grill as desired in your grill pan or outdoor grill on both sides.
In a separate bowl, combine the corn, avocado, lime juice, jalapeno and red onion and serve on top of the flank steak as salsa.
