The thin slices of Steak, with a fresh, fruity Salsa accompaniment create a range of flavours and textures that you don’t see very often, but create a dish suitable for such a wide range of tastes and preferences.
Using Fresh Pineapple instead of Canned will help the flavours blend easier and better, but make sure you don’t leave any of the skin or core in, or these pieces will become quite tough and hard.
2 cups of Peeled, Cored and Chopped Fresh Pineapple
300grams Mandarin Orange Sections, Drained
½ Cup Chopped Red or Green Sweet Peppers
1/3 Cup Picante Sauce
350grams Beef Flank or Boneless Sirloin Steak, cut ½ Inch thick
½ tsp Chilli Powder
1tbsp Olive Oil
6 Cups Mixed Salad Greens
1. For the Salsa, mix the Pineapple, Mandarin Oranges, Sweet Peppers and Picante Sauce in a blender, before setting aside for at least an hour to allow flavours to mix
2. Trim the fat from the Steak, and slice across the grain in the Meat, and sprinkle the Steaks with Chilli Powder.
3. In a large pan, cook half of the steak over a medium-hot heat for around five minutes, before cooking the other half of the meat.
4. Arrange on the plate, with the Steak on top of the Salad Leaves and Salsa over the top of the Steak.
This meal goes very well as part of a larger spread – very nice with a fresh made Potato Salad, Cous Cous or as part of a picnic meal.
