Grilled Flank Steak with Pineapple Salsa

From Scott Hagnas, Performance Menu

Aah, summertime. Time to fire up the grill! Here is a quick and easy dinner.

Time: 20 minutes
· 500gms flank steak
· 2 tsp olive oil
· 1 tsp chipotle powder
· 4 slices of pineapple or pineapple rings
· 1 1/4 C chopped red bell peppers
· 1/2 C chopped red onion
· 1/4 C chopped cilantro
· 2 Tbsp lime juice

Get the grill ready! Meanwhile, mix oil and chipotle powder in a dish. Apply to both sides of the steak, then grill for around 5 minutes on one side. Flip and continue to grill for around 3 minutes more. (remember that grassfed beef will cook faster than conventional beef. If you use conventional beef, you may need to grill it for a few minutes longer) Remove to a plate and cover for 10 minutes. The steak will continue to cook.

Meanwhile, grill the pineapple rings for 2-3 minutes per side. Dice the pineapple, place in a bowl. Add the remaining ingredients.

Slice the steak thinly, serve with the salsa.
