Thisssssssss is the HEIGHT of a satisfying, easy weeknight dinner, friends. The steak gets a delicious sear and is then roasted to medium rare perfection, and the whole thing is topped off with a WONDERFUL, fresh, crunchy, satisfying spicy cucumber salsa.
It’s dinner dreams, feel me? It’s the combination of flavors and textures that will make your taste buds sing Christmas carols all year round.
Let’s talk details a little bit here:
- The steak is super simple – we don’t do a whole lot to it because the cucumber salsa is such a flavor powerhouse. We just season it with salt and pepper, give a hard sear for about 3 minutes a side, and pop it in the oven for several minutes. Oh, we also throw some ghee and crushed garlic in there and then spoon that over top once its done. No biggie….But it’s actually a huge biggie – FLAVOR TOWN.
- The spicy cucumber salsa. When you first try it, you might think it’s a little too spicy on its own, but I think it’s the perfect level when paired with the steak. But if you are a mild spice lover, half the jalapeno or omit it all together! Here’s what’s in it: avocado, cucumber, jalapeno, red onion, cilantro, lime juice, garlic. Mince it up, stir it up, season, and looooaaaaddd onto your steak!
