Steak with Smoky Salsa

  • 1 can (14 ounces) salsa-style, fire-roasted diced tomatoes, undrained
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/4 cup diced yellow onion
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon chili powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse kosher salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1/4 teaspoon cumin
  • 1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds steak (such as top sirloin), trimmed, seasoned with salt and pepper


In a blender, puree the tomatoes, cilantro, onion, red wine vinegar, chili powder, garlic powder, salt, smoked paprika, cumin and cayenne pepper until smooth.  Pour into a jar and refrigerate until ready to use.

Season the steaks with salt and pepper, or your favorite steak seasoning.  Grill or cook in a cast iron pan to your liking.  Top the steak with the salsa, and serve with the quinoa black bean salad.
