Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 2 beef Strip Steaks Boneless, cut 1 inch thick (about 10 ounces each)
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 lime wedges
  • 1/2 to 1 cup prepared guacamole
  • Additional lime wedges (optional)

Cooking:

  1. Combine cumin and garlic; press evenly onto beef Steaks.

  2. Place Steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 11 to 14 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 11 to 15 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.

    Cook's Tip: To broil, place Steaks on rack in broiler pan so surface of beef is 3 to 4 inches from heat. Broil 13 to 17 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning once.

    To cook in a grill pan on the stovetop, place Steaks in a preheated pan over medium heat. Grill 12-15 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.
  3. Squeeze juice from 1 lime wedge over each Steak. Carve Steaks into thin slices. Serve with guacamole; garnish with lime wedges, if desired.
