cost per recipe: $32.82

  • 1 1/2 cups Pace® Chunky Salsa
  • 2 1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 2 pounds beef T-bone steak(4 steaks), 1/2-inch thick
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1 can (about 15 ounces) black beans, rinsed and drained
  • 1 large avocado, peeled, pitted and chopped (about 1 1/2 cups)


  • Tips

    • Tip: *The internal temperature of the meat should reach 145°F.
  • Step 1

    Stir 1 cup of the salsa and 2 teaspoons of the cumin in a 3-quart shallow, nonmetallic dish or gallon-size resealable plastic bag. Add the steaks and turn them over to coat with the marinade. Cover the dish or seal the plastic bag and refrigerate for 1 hour, turning the steaks over a few times while they're marinating.

  • Step 2

    Stir the remaining salsa and cumin, lime juice, cilantro, beans and avocado in a 2-quart bowl and set it aside.

  • Step 3

    Lightly oil the grill rack and heat the grill to medium. Remove the steaks from the marinade. Discard any remaining marinade.

  • Step 4

    Grill the steaks for 12 minutes for medium-rare* or to desired doneness, turning the steak over halfway through grilling. Serve the steaks with the salsa mixture.

    I made this for my husband on Father's Day. And he loved it, it's definitely a twist on the ordinary steak. the only thing I did different was instead of serving the sauce cold on top, I warmed a cup of Pace salsa.

    My husband made these except he cut the meat off of the t-bones to marinate them and grilled them. DELICIOUS! tender, juicy, YUMMY! I loved the salsa mix with the beans and avacado. I enven saved the leftover salsa and put it on my nachos another night!
