Dysfunctional Chef: Ancho-Marinated Skirt Steak with Warm Black Bean Salad

Janice Taylor, Life Coach and 50-Lb. BIG-TIME Weight Loss WINNER is working through her ambivalent relationship with the kitchen, one recipe at a time!!! Join in, have fun, laugh it up, slim down!

Want to know what magazine offer up platters of some of the ‘best,’ tastiest and healthiest recipes?  Here’s a hint:  it’s not a recipe magazine, a women’s magazine, nor a diet magazine.  It’s a ‘living in the west’ magazine, called Sunset.

Not only does this month’s issue (October) celebrate Halloween in cider, apple and orange fashion, it includes five incredibly easy and reasonably ‘priced’ (meaning ‘price of calories’) fall recipes to warm up your weeknights!

Here’s one that I just adore!  Only 354 calories per serving (or 8 points if you are ‘pointing’ it)!

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup Syrah or other dry red wine
  • 1/2 cup red wine vinegar, divided
  • About 6 tbsp. olive oil, divided
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic, divided
  • 1 tablespoon plus 1 tsp. pepper
  • 2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • 2 teaspoons ground cumin, divided
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano leaves
  • 1 tablespoon ground dried ancho chiles or chili powder
  • 1 skirt steak (about 1 1/2 lbs.)
  • 2 fresh poblano chiles (sometimes labeled pasilla)
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped
  • 3 cans black beans (15 oz. each), drained and rinsed
  • 1 large red pepper, stemmed, seeded, and cut into 1/2-in. chunks
  • 1 1/2 cups cherry tomatoes, halved
  • About 3 green onions, sliced (including green tops)
  • 1/4 cup chopped fresh cilantro

Preparation

  • 1. Combine wine, 1/4 cup each vinegar and oil, 1 tbsp. each garlic and pepper, 1 tsp. each salt and cumin, the oregano, and ground chiles in a large, resealable plastic food bag. If steak is in 1 long piece, cut in half crosswise; rinse, add to bag, seal, and turn to coat. Chill at least 4 hours or up to 1 day.
  • 2. Preheat broiler. Halve, stem, and seed the poblanos. Lay skin side up on a baking sheet and broil 4 inches from heat until well charred, 6 to 7 minutes. Let stand 10 minutes, then peel and coarsely chop.
  • 3. Heat grill to high (450° to 550°). In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, sauté onion and remaining 1 tbsp. garlic in 2 tbsp. oil until soft, about 5 minutes. Stir in beans and remaining 1/4 cup vinegar and 1 tsp. each pepper, salt, and cumin; turn heat to low.
  • 4. Oil cooking grate well. Lift steak from marinade (discard marinade) and grill, turning once, until browned on both sides but still pink in the center (cut to test), 7 to 10 minutes total. Transfer to a board and let rest at least 5 minutes.
  • 5. Meanwhile, add poblanos, red pepper, tomatoes, 3 green onions, and cilantro to bean mixture, and stir occasionally until warm. Slice steak on the diagonal across the grain and serve on warm bean salad. Garnish with more green onions if you like.
  • Note: Nutritional analysis is per serving.
