Memorial BBQ on Tuesday!!!

Well since my kids were to busy with friends this memorial weekend attending BBQ's and end of school year pool parties, I never got the chance to BBQ. So tonight, I decided to fire up the grill and make a recipe I found in the June 2010 issue of Cooking Light. It was super easy and great BBQ taste with a twist of Southwestern flair.
Doesn't this look yummy!

Here is the recipe...
Grilled Polenta with Spicy Steak
4 tsp canola oil, divided
3/4 tsp kosher salt, divided
1/2 tsp cumin
1/2 tsp chiptole chile powder
1/4 tsp freshly ground pepper
1 flank steak
1 tube of polenta, cut into 8 slices
1/2 cup crumbled queso fresco
1 ripe peeled avocado, sliced
1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves
1/2 cup fresh salsa
lime wedges(optional)

1. Combine 1 tsp oil, 1/2 tsp salt, cumin, chile powder and pepper. Rub over steak. Grill Steak about 6 minutes on each side. Cut into thin slices.
2. Brush oil over sliced polenta, sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill polenta about 3 minutes each side.
3. Plate steak slices, polenta, avocado slices, sprinkle crumbled queso fresco cheese and fresh cilantro and fresh salsa over steak and Polenta. Server.

You don't need a holiday weekend to enjoy a nice grilled meal in the sumertime! Enjoy!
