Chili Steak with Pan Salsa..

WebMD Recipe from

Any cut of steak will work for this recipe, but we especially like the flavor and texture of rib-eye with these seasonings; look for steak that has been thinly cut. A cold ale, sweet potato fries and vinegary coleslaw can round out the meal.

Servings: 2

Yield: 2 servings

Total Time: 20 minutes

Prep Time: 20 minutes

Recipe Ingredients:

  1. 8 ounces 1/2-inch-thick steaks, such as rib-eye, trimmed of fat and cut into 2 portions
  2. 1 teaspoon chili powder
  3. 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  4. 1 teaspoon extra-virgin olive oil
  5. 2 plum tomatoes, diced
  6. 2 teaspoons lime juice
  7. 1 tablespoon chopped fresh cilantro

Recipe Steps:

  1. Sprinkle both sides of steak with chili powder and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and cook, turning once, 1 to 2 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer the steaks to a plate, cover with foil and let rest while you make the salsa.
  2. Add tomatoes, lime juice and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt to the pan and cook, stirring often, until the tomatoes soften, about 3 minutes. Remove from heat, stir in cilantro and any accumulated juices from the steaks. Serve the steaks topped with the salsa.
