Yields: 4 portions


  • 1 ripe avocado
  • 1 tbsp lime juice
  • 1/2 tsp salt, divided
  • pinch of ground pepper
  • 1/2 tsp ground cumin
  • 1/2 tsp chili powder
  • 1 lb flank steak
  • 1 loaf of Italian bread (12-14 inches)
  • 1 cup torn salad greens
  • 1 large ripe tomato, thinly sliced

Preheat broiler. Cut avocado lengthwise around the pit; twist halves to separate; strike pit with a knife blade and pull to remove; scoop out pulp with a spoon; place in a small bowl. Mash avocado with a fork; stir in lime juice, 1/4 tsp of salt and the pepper; set aside.

In a cup, combine cumin, chili powder and remaining 1/4 tsp salt. Rub seasoning mixture over both sides of the steak; place on a rack in a broiler pan. Broil steak, 2 to 3 inches from heat source, until cooked as desired (about 5 minutes on each side for medium).

Remove to a cutting board; let it rest for 5 minutes; cut diagonally in thin slices. Split bread horizontally almost through. Spread avocado mixture on top half; layer salad greens, beef and tomato on bottom of loaf; close sandwich. Cut crosswise in 4 pieces.
