This thinly sliced steak grilled and topped on a bed of lettuce with seasoned veggies is the perfect healthy meal for a summer barbecue. Top it with a homemade Chili Lime Dressing and it will become a new favorite!
2 pounds (1-inch or more thick) tender beef steak
2-4 tablespoon steak rub or seasoning of choice*
4-5 ears fresh corn (or 2 1⁄2 cups frozen corn)
2 teaspoons butter
1 can (15 oz) seasoned black beans (about 1 1⁄2 cups)
1 avocado, peeled and diced
1 roma tomato, chopped
1⁄4cup red bell pepper, diced
1⁄4cup snipped fresh cilantro torn lettuce
1 cup crumbled Feta cheese
Chili Lime Dressing (see below)
Chili Lime Dressing
1⁄4 cup lime juice
2 tablespoons oil
2 tablespoons honey
1⁄2 teaspoon chili powder (more or less to taste)
2 tablespoons chopped cilantro
2-3 drops Tabasco sauce (optional, to taste).
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
Season steak to taste. Grill to desired doneness. NOTE: Meat will continue to cook once removed from the grill. Remove from grill, cover with foil and rest 10 minutes. Cook longer for more well done meat.
Corn may be prepared in two ways:
1. Outdoor Grill corn on cob: Husk and remove silk from fresh corn; rub well with butter, salt and pepper to taste; place on medium grill, turn often to avoid burning corn and grill until golden and tender (about 8-10 minutes). Do not overcook and dry out. Cool and cut corn from cob.
2. Pan Grill frozen corn: Heat non-stick skillet over medium high heat; add butter swirl to coat pan. Add frozen corn, salt and pepper to taste; pan grill, stirring occasionally until corn is golden (about 8 minutes).
Drain and rinse black beans; toss with diced avocado, chopped tomato, cooked corn, tomato, bell pepper and cilantro.
Arrange lettuce on individual or a serving platter. Slice meat across-grain in thin slices and arrange slices over lettuce; top with corn salad, sprinkle with cheese and drizzle with salad dressing.
Chili Lime Dressing:
Whisk together or blend in a blender lime juice, oil, honey, cilantro, chili powder, Tabasco sauce (optional), salt, and pepper. Drizzle over salad.
