  1. For the marinated steak: Put the steak in a roasting pan. Combine the Worcestershire sauce, granulated garlic, black pepper and seasoning salt in a small bowl. Pour the marinade over the steak and massage. Cover and refrigerate for 1 hour.
  2. For the salsa verde: Put the tomatillos, jalapeños and onion in a pot of water on high heat. Add the garlic and some salt. Boil for 20 minutes, then cool for 30 minutes. Add the ingredients to a blender and blend. Return the salsa to the pot and warm for 15 minutes.
  3. For the guacamole: Peel the avocados and put them into a bowl. Crush them down, then add the salt, pepper and garlic. Squeeze in the juice from the lemons and stir until mixed.
  4. For the marinated steak: In a flat top skillet, cook the steak to the desired temperature. Add the onions and caramelize them for 5 minutes. Add to the top of the steak.
  5. For the enchilada: Heat a tortilla on a flat top or skillet. Add some cheese to the tortilla and roll up. Grill the tortilla for 2 minutes on each side. Plate with the steak and continue to make 5 more. Top the steak and enchiladas with the guacamole and salsa verde.
