Steak with Avocado Sauce and Tomato Salad

Steak with Avocado Sauce and Tomato Salad

1 1/4 pounds beef eye round roast (in 1 piece)
2 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon Mexican-style chili powder
Kosher salt
1 cup cherry or grape tomatoes, halved
7 to 8 canned hearts of palm, thickly sliced
2 tablespoons lime juice, plus lime wedges for garnish
Freshly ground pepper
1 ripe Hass avocado
1/3 cup fresh cilantro
1 large clove garlic
Flour tortillas, warmed, for serving (optional)

Slice the roast crosswise into 3 even steaks. Heat a cast-iron skillet over medium-high heat. Brush the steaks all over with 1 tablespoon olive oil, season with the chili powder and add salt to taste. Cook until a thermometer inserted into the side registers 125 degrees for medium-rare, 4 to 5 minutes per side. Let rest for 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, toss the tomatoes and hearts of palm in a bowl with the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil, 1 tablespoon lime juice, and salt and pepper to taste.

Halve and pit the avocado; scoop the flesh into a blender or food processor. Add the cilantro, garlic, the remaining 1 tablespoon lime juice and 1/2 cup water; puree. Season with salt.

Thinly slice the steaks. Serve with the avocado sauce, tomato salad and tortillas for wrapping, if desired. Garnish with lime wedges.
