These Mexican-style grilled steak sandwiches are a great weeknight or cookout party option. Flat iron is a super-flavorful cut from the shoulder; it’s quite lean, so cook it no further than medium-rare to ensure that it’s tender and juicy.

Ingredients

  • 1 pound flat iron (top blade) steak
  • 1/2 teaspoon coarse sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4 chewy, crusty rolls, split
  • 1 cup finely sliced romaine lettuce
  • 1 large carrot, grated
  • 1 small ripe avocado, thinly sliced
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain Greek yogurt
  • Juice of 1/2 lime
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped pickled jalapeño peppers, plus more as desired

Directions

Prepare a gas or charcoal grill for high-heat cooking. Sprinkle steak with salt and pepper and then grill, turning once or twice until browned and cooked to medium-rare, about 8 minutes. Let rest 5 minutes, then slice very thinly across the grain. Pile steak on bottoms of rolls and top with lettuce, carrot, avocado and cilantro. In a small bowl, stir together yogurt, lime juice and chopped jalapeños, and drizzle the mixture into the sandwiches. Add more pickled jalapeño to the sandwiches if desired.

Grill Shopping Tip

Think twice before buying a thicker piece of meat; a 2-inch thick steak takes four times (not twice) as long as 1-inch thick steak to cook.

Grill Cooking Tip

If you're cooking something that's been marinated, make sure to pat the item dry before it hits the grill. Any sugar in the marinade will burn.
