  • For a charcoal grill, place onion slices and tomatillos on a piece of foil on the grill rack directly over medium coals. Place steak next to vegetables. Grill steak, uncovered, for 17 to 21 minutes or until medium (160°F), turning once halfway through grilling. Grill onion slices and tomatillos for 10 to 12 minutes or until tender and browned, turning once halfway through grilling. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium.

  • Transfer steak, onion, and tomatillos to a cutting board. Cover steak with foil; let stand for 10 minutes. Thinly slice steak across the grain. Chop the onion slices and tomatillos. In a large bowl combine chopped onion and tomatillos, beans, tomato, jalapeño pepper, and cilantro. Add lime juice and 1/4 teaspoon cumin; toss to combine. To serve, arrange romaine on six serving plates. Top with black bean mixture and the steak slices.

*Test Kitchen Tip:

Because chile peppers contain volatile oils that can burn your skin and eyes, avoid direct contact with them as much as possible. When working with chile peppers, wear plastic or rubber gloves. If your bare hands do touch the peppers, wash your hands and nails well with soap and warm water.

**Test Kitchen Tip:

To broil steak, place the steak on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 15 to 18 minutes or until medium (160°F), turning once halfway through broiling and adding tomatoes and onions to broiler pan for the last 10 minutes of cooking, turning them once. Continue as directed.
