Spicy Skirt Steak with Avocado Dipping Sauce
Ingredients
  • 1  English cucumber
  • 1  medium avocado, peeled and pitted
  • 1/4  cup  sour cream
  • 1/4  cup  roughly chopped fresh dill
  • 2  tablespoons  lime juice
  • 2  teaspoons  minced jalapeno chile peppers
  • 1  teaspoon  minced garlic
  • 1/2  teaspoon  kosher salt
  • 2  teaspoons  kosher salt
  • 1  teaspoon  dry mustard
  • 1  teaspoon  chipotle chile powder
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground black pepper
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground coriander
  • 1/2  teaspoon  ground cumin
  • 2  pounds  skirt steak, trimmed of fat
  •  Olive oil
  • 1  recipe  Cucumber Salad
Directions

1. For Avocado Dipping sauce, cut about 3 inches from cucumber and coarsely chop (reserve remaining for Cucumber Salad). Place in a food processor or blender. Add avocado, sour cream, dill, lime juice, jalapeno, garlic, and 1/2 teaspoon salt. Puree until smooth. Pour into a bowl; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.

2. For rub, in a small bowl combine the 2 teaspoons salt, the dry mustard, chipotle chile powder, black pepper, coriander, and cumin; set aside. Cut steak into portions, if needed, to make them easier to handle on the grill. Lightly brush steaks on all sides with olive oil; season evenly with rub. Let stand at room temperature for 30 minutes.

3. Prepare grill for direct cooking over high heat (about 500 degrees F).* Grill steaks over heat, with lid closed as much as possible, for 4 to 6 minutes for medium-rare, turning once or twice. Remove steaks from grill and let rest for 5 minutes. Slice across the grain in 1/2-inch-thick slices. Serve warm with Avocado Dipping Sauce and Cucumber Salad.

From the Test Kitchen*Direct Grilling:
  • For this method, the food is placed on the grill rack directly over the heat source. Direct grilling is best for searing and cooking small, tender cuts that cook in 30 minutes or less, such as steaks, burgers, or boneless chicken.
