Steak Diablo with Rice, Roasted Peppers and Guacamole

Steak Diablo from Real Simple

This spicy steak recipe marinated in roasted garlic salsa is supposed to use skirt steak or hanger steak.  Because Lund’s had neither (big shocker), I used sirloin.  The steak turned out well with the marinade.  I made sauce from the marinade once I took the meat out.  I brought the marinade to a boil in a saucepan and cooked it down for about 10 minutes and added about a tablespoon of soy sauce.  This made a nice smoky sauce to top the steak and rice.

For the peppers, I cut red, yellow and orange bell peppers into wide slices and tossed them with olive oil and Lawry’s seasoned salt.  They went on the grill at the same time as the meat and that was the perfect amount of time, about 10 minutes, turning once.

The guacamole was mighty tasty if I do say so myself.  I used one avocado, 1/2 yellow heirloom tomato finely diced, one small minced garlic clove, a couple tablespoons finely minced onion, a couple tablespoons Sadie’s salsa, a squeeze of lime and a dash of salt.

Red-Skinned Potato Mini-Fries with Red Onions

6-8 small red-skinned potatoes
¼ cup chopped red onion
1 cup vegetable oil for frying
sea salt

Leaving peel on, cut potatoes into ¼ inch sticks.  Toss with chopped onions.  Heat oil over medium-high heat until it bubbles rapidly when a piece of potato is added.  Fry potatoes until golden brown on the bottom and then turn.  Remove to plate lined with paper towels to drain.  Salt to taste and serve immediately. Serves 2.

The browned onion bits make these very tasty.  I served these with burgers and grilled red and yellow peppers.
