Garlic Lime Beef with Avocado Salsa
Serves: 4 (generously) Preparation time: 20 minutes Total time: 30 minutes
1/4 cup olive oil
Juice and zest of 1 lime
1/4 cup seasoned rice or cider vinegar
1 tablespoon Accent or other MSG product
1 teaspoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons garlic powder
1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 pound flank steak, cut against the grain into 1/2-inch strips
1 avocado, halved, peeled, pitted and cubed
1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro
2 cloves garlic, peeled, minced
Salt to taste

Method of Preparation

In a medium bowl, whisk together the olive oil, lime juice and zest, vinegar, Accent, soy sauce, garlic powder and black pepper. Set aside 2 tablespoons of the mixture. Add the steak to the bowl and toss to coat. Set aside for 15 minutes.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, gently toss together the avocado, cilantro, garlic and reserved 2 tablespoons of lime marinade. Mix well, then season with salt. Set aside.
Preheat the grill to medium-high and oil the grates.
Grill the steak slices just until grill marks appear, about 1 to 2 minutes per side. Arrange the steak on a serving platter and serve topped with the avocado salsa.
