    • 3 – 4 pounds lean sirloin steak, cut into serving-size pieces
    • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 clove garlic, minced
    • ½ tsp black pepper
    • 1 tsp chili powder
    • Salt to taste
    • 1 recipe Randall Hearty and Healthy Refried Beans
    • 1 recipe Salsa Verde
    • Fresh flour tortillas

    For the Beans:

    • 1 48-ounce jar Randall Pinto Beans
    • 6 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 cups chopped onion
    • 1 Tbsp sugar
    • 1 1/2 tsp hot pepper sauce
    • 1 tsp salt, (or to taste)
    • 8 oz shredded jack cheese
    • Extra cheese for the top, if desired

    For the Salsa:

    • 2 Tbsp extra-virgin olive oil
    • 2 Tbsp minced fresh jalapeño pepper
    • 1 4 oz can chopped mild green chilies
    • 1 cup chopped onion
    • 1 tsp cumin
    • Salt to taste
    • 1/4 cup chopped cilantro
    • 2 Tbsp cider vinegar


For the Steak:

  1. Stir the garlic into the oil. Mix in the pepper, chili powder, and salt.
  2. Rub the oil mixture into both sides of the steak. Set aside for 1 hour before grilling or broiling.
  3. Keep warm, or reheat covered in the microwave at serving time.

For the Beans:

  1. Drain the beans over a bowl. Measure out 1/2 cup of the liquid and reserve. Purée the beans with the 1/2 cup of reserved liquid in a food processor or blender until the mixture is very smooth. (If a blender is used, pour in the liquid first, then add the beans.)
  2. Heat the olive oil in a heavy saucepan. Add the onion. Cover the pan and cook over medium heat for 4-5 minutes or until the onion is just tender. Stir in the puréed beans. Add the sugar, hot pepper sauce and salt. Cook over low heat for 10 minutes, stirring often. Stir in the cheese until it is melted.
  3. Serve hot as a vegetable side dish with more cheese melted on top of each serving.

For the Salsa:

  1. Heat the oil in a heavy skillet. Add the peppers, chilies, onion and cumin.
  2. Sauté and stir over high heat until onion is tender, about 5 minutes. Remove from heat and allow to cool. Salt to taste.
  3. Stir in the cilantro and vinegar. Serve chilled or at room temperature. Makes about 1 cup.

To Serve:

  1. Grill or broil the steak, turning only once to the desired doneness.
  2. Serve with Randall Hearty and Healthy Refried Beans on the side.
  3. Sprinkle the Salsa Verde over the top.
  4. Serve warmed flour tortillas on the side (they may be lightly buttered and warmed in foil). Serves 6 to 8.
