Total Time:
1 hr 5 min
15 min
5 min
45 min

4 to 5 servings

  • 3 teaspoons olive oil, plus more for spraying
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 6 ounces flank steak, trimmed
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon chili powder
  • 2 whole wheat naan breads
  • 3/4 cup shredded low-fat Cheddar
  • 1/2 cup store-bought salsa
  • Serving suggestions: avocado, cilantro and lime juice

  • Heat 1 teaspoon of the olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook until soft and caramelized, stirring every 5 minutes, 20 to 30 minutes. Set aside.

  • In a small bowl, combine the cumin and chili powder. Brush both sides of steak with the remaining 2 teaspoons olive oil and rub the spices thoroughly onto the meat. Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Grill the steak for about 4 minutes on each side or until cooked to desired doneness. Rest the steak for 5 minutes and then cut diagonally across the grain into 1/4-inch strips (or thinner, depending on your preference). Wipe the pan clean.

  • Using the same grill pan, spray both sides of naan with olive oil and place in the pan. Cook on each side, until it starts to char, 2 to 3 minutes. Repeat with second naan.

  • Lay the naan breads on a baking sheet. Top with the caramelized onions, steak and cheese. Broil until the cheese melts, 2 to 4 minutes. Top with the salsa, avocado, cilantro and some lime juice. Use a pizza cutter to slice, and then serve.
