Roasted Flank Steak with Fresh Peach Pico de Gallo #BakingBloggers


With Sue of A Palatable Pastime as our host, we're sharing our favorite peach recipes! She wrote: "We're baking peaches this month, by popular demand. Sweet or savory, some  portion of the  recipe should be baked." I can't wait to have some new ways in which to use my favorite summer stone fruit! Here's the line-up...

Roasted Flank Steak 
with Fresh Peach Pico de Gallo

I considered making an authentic bellini with freshly pureed roasted peaches; I toyed with the idea of a peach granita or gelato, again with roasted peaches. But, in the end, I went with the sweet peaches as a foil to a hearty main dish.

Ingredients

Meat
  • 1 flank steak, between 2 and 3 pounds
  • 1 Tablespoon organic brown sugar 
  • 1 Tablespoon sweet paprika 
  • 1 teaspoon smoked paprika
  • 1 teaspoon freshly ground salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin 
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground coriander 
  • olive oil, as needed

Peach Pico de Gallo
  • 3 donut peaches, chopped (approximately 1 cup)
  • 1 tomato, chopped (approximately 1 cup)
  • 1/2 sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 jalapeño pepper, chopped
  • 2 to 3 sweet peppers, chopped
  • 1 Tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 Tablespoon  honey
  • 1/8 cup fresh mint leaves, roughly chopped
  • 18 cup fresh cilantro leaves, roughly chopped
  • freshly ground salt, as needed
  • freshly ground pepper, as needed

Procedure

Meat
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F. Place the flank steak on a parchment-lined baking sheet. In a small bowl, combine the sugar, paprikas, salt, cumin, and coriander. Sprinkle the spices over the flank steak and rub it in. Drizzle with olive oil. Roast in the preheated oven for between 25 and 40 minutes, depending on desired level of doneness and size of the steak.


Remove from oven and let rest 10 minutes before slicing and serving. While the flank steak roasts and rest, prepare your pico de gallo.

Peach Pico de Gallo
Place all of the ingredients - except for the salt and pepper - in a small mixing bowl. Blend gently and let stand for 15 minutes to blend flavors. To make this more spicy, adjust to use more jalapeno peppers.


To Serve
Slice your flank steak into 1/4" to 1/2" thick pieces and lay them on your serving platter.


Spoon the pico de gallo over the top. Sprinkle with freshly ground salt and pepper, if desired. Serve immediately.

Jamaican Stew Peas #EattheWorld

  Here we are at November #EattheWorld event. What a year this has been! This challenge has been one that gave us some excuse for virtual travel as we've been sheltered-in-place with the coronavirus epidemic for most of 2020. So, we've been able to read about different parts of the world and create a dinner, or at least a dish, with that cuisine. This Eat the World project is spearheaded by Evelyne of  CulturEatz . Read more about  her challenge . This month, Evelyne had us heading to somewhere tropical: Jamaica. I have actually been to Jamaica, but it was almost thirty years ago...and it was just a jumping off point for the rest of our Caribbean exploration. I don't remember eating anything at all!

Lamskoteletten op zijn oud-Hollands for #TheBookClubCookbookCC

Here we are at April's #thebookclubcookbookCC event. It's hard to believe that we only have three more months in this year-long journey to explore - and cook from -  The Book Club Cookbook, Revised Edition: Recipes and Food for Thought from Your Book Club's Favorite Books and Authors  by Judy Gelman and Vicki Levy Krupp.* Judy, Vicki, and their publisher,  Tarcher-Penguin ,  have provided the hosting bloggers with copies of the book plus copies to giveaway each month of the project. Woohoo. Incredibly generous. This month Sarah at  Things I Make (for Dinner)  has selected  Girl With a Pearl Earring  by Tracy Chevalier.** Click to read  Sarah's invitation . She shared the recipe for Griet's Vegetable Soup, but invited us to find inspiration in any of the pages. On the Page... While the boys were playing around the lake during our week in Tahoe earlier in the month, I stayed by the fire and finished this book in one sitting. Loved it. photo by R
