3 ingredient meals: Steak Verde

Another awesome 3 ingredient meal! This time...steak! An amazing steak that has so much flavor, takes less than 30 minutes to make, and is great for the waistline! :)

Steak Verde
Grocery List:
One 1-lb flank steak (3/4 to 1 in. think)
1 cup salsa verde (green salsa, available on the ethnic food isle with the regular jarred salsa)
1 cup cilantro leaves

How to make it:
1. Brush with oil or coat with nonstick spray an outdoor grill or stovetop grill pan; heat.

2. Season steak with 1/4 tsp each salt and pepper. Grill steak 9 to 11 minutes, turning once, for medium-rare. Remove steak to cutting board; let rest 5 minutes.

3. Meanwhile, put salsa and cilantro in a food processor and process until smooth. Slice steak thinly across the grain and serve with the sauce.

**Different Takes
Rub steak with a little ground cumin before grilling. After spooning sauce on steak, scatter diced tomato and avocado on top.
Good with skinless, boneless chicken breasts or boneless pork chops instead of steak.

***Sliced tomatoes and warmed flour tortillas are delicious accompaniments.
