The ridiculous amount I have piled on my second helping here should be a testament to how tasty this was.  If you like gucamole, you need to try this.  Corrie was cracking me up while eating…he’d look up every couple of minutes and say “this is really good.”  So I was a very full and very happy camper.  I will note, I probably got a little carried away with the quantity I put on my second helping here, you may want to start off with a touch (okay probably a lot) less if you’re a normal person.  “Normal” has never been my strong suit.

Grilled Steak with Avocado Sauce

  • 1 1/2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 pounds flat iron steak
  • 1 avocado, diced
  • 1/3 cup chopped cilantro
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
  • juice from 1 lime

Combine the first five (garlic powder through onion powder) ingredients in a bowl, and then rub it all over the steak to coat.

Using a grill on medium heat, cook the steak to medium rare – about 5 minutes per side – or medium (your preference).  Remove from the heat and allow to rest for 10 minutes.

Put the avocado, cilantro, garlic, red wine vinegar, olive oil, and salt in a food processor and process until smooth.

If you’re not using the sauce immediately, refrigerate.

Slice, sauce, and serve!
