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!

#comfortfood: Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco with Bean Ragout

As one of Jamie Oliver's Food Revolution Day Ambassadors ( I'm the Monterey #FRD2014 rep! ) I will be sent a copy of his latest cookbook - to cook from and write about. I can't wait. I do have to laugh though, because its title is  Comfort Food . And, according to a good friend:  I only make uncomfortable food . Oh, well. I can learn! To celebrate launch day - today - I'm sharing one of the recipes. Here's Jamie Oliver's Ossobuco alla Milanese recipe from his new cookbook, Comfort Food. And here's my adaptation. I typically don't eat veal, so I went to our local butcher for some lamb shanks sliced into an osso buco-style cut; but they had just sold their last shanks. Darn. But then I noticed the "never tethered...free to roam" on the veal package and decided to go for it. I added in shelling beans to make a ragout and served it over wild rice instead of risotto. Also, I used lots of different herbs in my gremolata instead of just pa
