Spring is finally here — we can enjoy the weather and break out the grill. This juicy, grilled, cumin-seasoned steak is paired with a fresh avocado salsa. Serve as an entree or alongside tortillas for a simple and flavorful meal.

Flank Steak with Avocado Salsa


  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1 (16-ounce) lean flank steak (3/4- to 1-inch thick)
  • 2 large plum tomatoes, seeded and chopped
  • 1 large avocado, chopped
  • 1 cup chopped English cucumber (about 1/2 a cucumber)
  • 1 small jalapeño, seeded and minced
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice


Sprinkle cumin and 1/4 teaspoon salt evenly on all sides of steak. Let stand 10 to 15 minutes or cover and refrigerate several hours.

Preheat grill or grill pan to medium-high heat.

Spray grill grates with cooking spray. Grill steaks 4 to 5 minutes on each side for medium-rare or to until desired degree of doneness. Let rest 5 minutes before slicing.

While steak rests, combine tomatoes, avocado, cucumber, jalapeño, cilantro, lime juice and remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl. Thinly slice steak and top with salsa.
