What You'll Need:
- Cooking spray
- 1 (8-ounce) can pineapple slices, drained
- 2 tablespoons brown sugar
teaspoon kosher salt, divided
- 1 (1-pound) flat iron steak (see note)
- 2 scallions
cup chunky salsa
What To Do:
- Spray cold grill rack with cooking spray. Preheat the grill to medium-high heat (350 degrees to 400 degrees).
- Sprinkle pineapple with brown sugar and 1/4 teaspoon salt. Sprinkle steak with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt. Grill steak, pineapple, and scallions, covered, 3 to 4 minutes on each side or until steak is desired degree of doneness and pineapple and scallions are tender.
- Let steak stand 5 minutes; cut diagonally across grain into thin slices. Finely chop pineapple and scallions; place in a small bowl, and stir in salsa. Serve pineapple salsa with steak.
This cut comes from the shoulder blade and is a great choice for grilling. If you can't find flat iron steak, flank steak is a good substitute. By allowing the steak to stand before slicing, the juices are preserved and it's easy to slice. Diagonally slicing the meat across the grain ensures extra tenderness.
