Total Time 30 min.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup finely chopped sweet onion, such as Vidalia or Walla Walla
  • 1 medium-large tomato, seeded and diced
  • 1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
  • 2 tablespoon minced jalapeño, or serrano pepper
  • 2 tablespoon red-wine or cider vinegar
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 3/4 teaspoon paprika
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 3/4 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground pepper
  • 2 8- to 10-ounce New York strip (top loin) steaks, trimmed
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 2 avocados, pitted and peeled

Cooking Directions

Step 1

To prepare Pebre Sauce: Place onion in a medium bowl, cover with ice water and let soak for 10 to 20 minutes. Drain. Combine the onion, tomato, cilantro, jalapeño (or serrano), vinegar, garlic and 1/4 teaspoon salt in a medium bowl.

Step 2

Preheat oven to 325°F.

Step 3

To prepare steak: Mix paprika, cumin, oregano, 1/2 teaspoon salt and pepper in a small bowl. Rub the spice mixture evenly over both sides of steaks.

Step 4

Heat oil in a large ovenproof skillet, such as cast iron, over medium-high. Add the steaks and cook just until browned, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Transfer the pan to the oven and roast the steaks 5 to 7 minutes for medium-rare, depending on thickness. Transfer to a clean cutting board. Tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.

Step 5

Meanwhile, mash avocados with the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt in a small bowl.

Step 6

Carve the steak into thin slices. Serve with the avocado and Pebre Sauce.
