Carne Asada

From South Beach Diet
4 servings

Prep time: 10 minutes
Start to finish: 25minutes


1⁄4 cup fresh lime juice
2 garlic cloves, minced
1⁄2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1⁄8 teaspoon salt
1 (11⁄2-pound) flank steak, about 1 inch thick
1 large red onion, sliced into 1⁄4-inch-thick rounds
1⁄2 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
1 small avocado, sliced into 1⁄4-inch-thick pieces
1 cup fresh tomato salsa


1. In a 9- by 13-inch glass baking dish, combine lime juice, garlic, pepper, and salt. Add steak and turn to coat. Cover the dish with plastic wrap and marinate steak at room temperature for 20 minutes, turning once.
2. Lightly coat a grill or grill pan with cooking spray and heat to medium-high. Grill or broil steak, basting with any remaining marinade, 5 to 7 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest for 5 to 10 minutes.
3. While steak is resting, in a medium bowl toss onion with oil. Grill, turning occasionally, until golden, 4 to 5 minutes. Cut steak into thin slices across the grain and divide among 4 plates. Serve with onion, avocado, and salsa.

Serve with Black Bean Soup
