I don’t have a recipe for any of this, I just threw in a little of this and a little of that. I usually use this marinade with Tequila, which we didn’t have. I substituted bourbon. It was delicious.
Measurements are approximate.
Start the salsa about 3-4 hours ahead so the flavors meld if desired.
1 T bourbon
2 T fresh lime juice
1 T olive oil
2 cloves garlic, peeled
1/2 tsp. dried red pepper flakes
1 tsp. salt
1 avocado, sliced and sprinkled with fresh lemon juice
1 lb of your favorite steak (I used Porterhouse)
I marinated the steak for about eight hours.
1 can black beans, rinsed and drained
1 mango, peeled and chopped
2 green onions, sliced
¼ cup frozen corn, cooked for a few minutes and cooled
1 large jalapeno pepper, sliced thin
1 tomato, diced
fresh lime juice (I used one whole lime)
chopped fresh cilantro
In a large bowl, combine the black beans, mango, onion, corn, tomato and jalapeno. Stir in the lime juice, a drizzle of olive oil and cilantro. Add a dash of salt. Cover and refrigerate.
Grill or broil steak about 5 minutes per side (for rare, which is the only way I will eat a steak). Let rest, then slice thinly. Scoop some salsa onto a plate, top with steak and slices of avocado.
