Prep: 15 minutes plus marinating and standing

Grill: 17 minutes

Serves: 4


  • 1          flank steak (about 1 1/2 pounds)
  • 1/2       cup medium salsa
  •             Nonstick cooking spray
  • 1/2       teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1/4       teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 4          (1/4-inch-thick) slices yellow onion
  • 2          poblano peppers, stemmed, quartered lengthwise and seeded

1. Place steak and salsa in large zip-top plastic bag; seal bag, pressing out excess air. Massage steak in bag to coat; refrigerate at least 2 or up to 4 hours.

2. Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Spray both sides of steak with cooking spray; sprinkle with salt and black pepper. Place steak on hot grill rack; cover and cook 10 minutes or until internal temperature of steak reaches 135¬∞ for medium-rare, turning once. Transfer steak to cutting board; tent with aluminum foil and let stand 10 minutes. (Internal temperature will rise to 145° upon standing.)

3. Brush both sides of onions and poblano peppers with butter; place on hot grill rack, cover and cook 7 minutes or until grill marks appear, turning once. Remove vegetables from grill; cut poblano peppers into 1 1/2-inch pieces.

4. Slice steak across the grain; serve topped with onions and peppers.
