Skirt Steak Guacamole Sandwich



  • 1 ripe, medium avocado
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 medium tomato, finely diced
  • 1 small jalapeno chile, seeded and minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced green onion
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon freshly ground pepper


  • 1 (10- to 12-ounce) skirt steak, trimmed of excess fat
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • Juice of 1 small lime
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 crusty rolls, split*
  • 1 small red bell pepper, finely chopped


  1. Guacamole: Peel, seed and dice the avocado. Place the avocado in a serving bowl and mash with the lemon juice until pulpy. Add the tomato, chile, green onion, salt and pepper.
  2. Sandwiches: With a sharp knife, make shallow diagonal slashes in one direction on the steak, then across in the other direction to score the surface. Smash the garlic clove with the flat of a knife. Rub the smashed garlic over the surface of the meat. Rub the ground cumin on both sides of the meat, followed by the lime juice, salt and pepper.
  3. Place the meat on a broiler pan 4 inches from heat and broil 3 minutes per side. Remove from broiler and let stand 1 minute. Cut the meat into thin strips crosswise and arrange half on the bottom half of each roll. Top with half of the diced red pepper and close the roll.
  4. Serve the guacamole on the side.

Yield: 2 servings

* If desired, toast the rolls in 350 degrees F oven for 5 minutes before assembling.
