Ingredients
  • Steak:
  • 2 tablespoons ground cumin
  • 2 tablespoons garlic powder
  • 2 tablespoons onion powder
  • 2 tablespoons chile powder
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 3 pounds flank steak
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 2 onions, sliced
  • 4 spicy chile peppers, seeded and sliced
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 ripe avocados, halved, pitted, peeled and diced
  • 1 small red onion, diced
  • 1 small tomato, diced
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • Juice of 1 Meyer lemon
  • 1 lime, juiced, plus 2 limes, zest and juice, divided
  • 2 cups sour cream
Directions

In a small saucepan over low heat, combine the cumin, garlic powder, onion powder, chile powder, and 4 tablespoons olive oil and bring to a light simmer. Cook for 4 minutes. Let cool. Place the steak in a baking dish and pour the seasoned oil over top. Marinate the steak in the refrigerator for 30 minutes. Bring the steak to room temperature before grilling.

Preheat a grill or grill pan on high heat.

Remove the steak from the marinade and season with salt and pepper. Grill the steak for about 7 minutes on each side for medium-rare. Let rest before slicing. Combine the onions and peppers with olive oil, and salt and pepper, to taste. Toss to coat in oil. Grill the onions and peppers for 4 minutes. Set aside.

Combine the avocado, red onion, tomato, garlic, lemon juice, and juice of 1 lime in a large bowl. Mash the avocado a bit with a fork. Stir in salt, and pepper, to taste. Mix in the sour cream with the remaining juice and zest of limes. Season with salt, to taste.

To serve: Slice the flank steak in thin slices and place it on a large platter. Serve with peppers and onions, guacamole, and lime-sour cream on the side.
