Grilled Lomo Saltado
- 1 skirt steak
- 2 medium red onions, cut in 1/2 lengthwise
- 1 clove garlic
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 4 teaspoons rice vinegar
- 4 teaspoons soy sauce
- 4 tablespoons canola oil
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 3/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
- 1 medium Yukon gold potato, peeled and cut into wedges
- 1/2 teaspoon paprika
- 2 medium heirloom tomatoes, cut into wedges
- 1/4 cup chopped cilantro leaves
Have grill pre-greased and preheated to medium-high.
Place steak in 1 bowl and onions in another. Using a knife, make a paste by combining garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Whisk together garlic paste, rice vinegar, soy sauce, 2 tablespoons of canola oil, cumin, and ground black pepper. Divide marinade between steak and onions. Refrigerate for 1/2 hour.
Before grilling, allow steak and onions to come to room temperature. Place steak on grill and cook about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Discard marinade. When done, let steak rest before slicing.
Place onions face down on grill and cook until slightly soft, about 6 minutes per side. When done, cut onions into wedges.
