adapted from Pampered Chef's Casual Cooking cookbook
3/4 cup tomato, chopped
1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro
1/2 cup Mexican cheese blend, shredded
1/2 tsp. cumin
pinch of garlic powder, onion powder, and chili powder, and salt *mix with cumin.
2 garlic cloves, pressed
1/2 tsp. salt
2 boneless beef top loin steaks, cut 1-inch thick (about 1 1/2 pounds)
Prepare grill for grilling.
Juice lime to measure 1/4 cup juice. Combine tomatoes, cilantro, lime juice, 1/4 cup of cheese, and seasoning mixture. Set aside.
Combine pressed garlic and salt and spread over steaks, evenly on both sides. Place steaks on grid of grill. Grill, uncovered, 15-18 minutes for medium rare (145 degrees) to medium doneness (160 degrees), turning occasionally. About 2 minutes before steaks are done, remove them to a platter; top evenly with tomato mixture and sprinkle with remaining cheese. Return to grill until steaks reach desired doneness and cheese is melted.
Serve with corn on the cob. :)
