Cilantro Lime Steak Bowl

The weather has been getting warmer and that means grill season is upon us!! We grill most of the summer and I can’t wait to try new recipes this summer. Grilled meats, vegetables and fruit – YUM!! I took advantage of the warm weather to whip up a steak bowl. You could always add in a scoop of cilantro rice; I opted to leave it out and pack my bowl with veggies. The steak had a great flavor even with only a short amount of time to marinate. I completely forgot to take it out of the freezer the night before to start thawing. Next time, I plan to marinate it for the full 2 hours to really pack in the cilantro lime flavor. Cilantro Lime Steak Bowl | Join Us, Pull up a Chair12 oz steak
4 cups romaine lettuce, washed and chopped
1/2 cup Mexican blend cheese, shredded
1/2 cup thinly sliced onions
1/2 cup thinly sliced peppers
1/2 cup chopped tomatoes
1 cup canned black beans, rinsed and drained
1/2 cup canned yellow corn, rinsed and drained

Marinade:
1 cup cilantro, lightly chopped
1 Tbsp fresh squeeze lime juice
1/4 cup olive oil
3 cloves garlic
1 jalapeno, ribs and seeds removed
1 tsp salt
1/2 tsp fresh ground pepper

To start, make the marinade. Add all the marinade ingredients into a food processor. Pulse until the mixture is chunky and thick. Place the steak in a large Ziploc bag and pour the marinade into the bag. Coat the steak and seal the bag. Place in the refrigerator and allow to marinate for 2 to 3 hours.

While the steak is marinating, saute the onions and peppers in a large skillet until they’re cooked. Preheat your grill or a cast iron pan. Cook your steak to your liking and then allow to rest before slicing. In a bowl, place the lettuce down first then top with tomatoes, beans, corn, peppers and onions, steak and cheese. Top with a dollop of sour cream or slices of avocado to finish your bowl.
