Brazilian Grilled Flank Steak

http://www.eatingwell.com/recipes/brazilian_grilled_flank_steak.html

From EatingWell:  February/March 2006, EatingWell for a Healthy Heart Cookbook (2008)

Barbecued meats (churrasco) are served in churrascarias, Brazilian barbecued-meat restaurants, with a salsa-like sauce as an accompaniment. Since hearts of palm show up at every salad bar in these restaurants, we've added them to the sauce to give it a tasty twist.

8 servings | Active Time: 30 minutes | Total Time: 30 minutes

Ingredients

Steak

Salsa

Preparation

  1. Preheat grill to high (see Broiling Variation).
  2. To prepare steak: Combine garlic, hot pepper, oil and salt in a small bowl. Rub the mixture on both sides of steak.
  3. To prepare salsa: Combine hearts of palm, tomatoes, onion, hot pepper, cilantro, vinegar and salt in a medium bowl.
  4. Reduce grill heat to medium and grill the steak 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board, tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes. Cut the steak across the grain into thin pieces. Serve with the salsa.
