. Slowly drizzle in a teaspoon or two of
Olive Oil (as needed)

Garlic (2 cloves)

Grill 6 minutes on each side, then allow to rest 5 minutes after taking it off the grill.
Cherry Tomatoes (3 cups)
Jalapeño Peppers (2)
Red Onion (1)
Olive Oil (1/2 Tbsp)
and transfer to a grill pan. Grill 10-15 minutes, tossing the vegetables half way through.
Once the vegetables are done, take half and pulse finely in a food processor. Add the remaining half and pulse 1-2 times, leaving large chunks. Stir in the
Fresh Cilantro (to taste)
and transfer to a serving bowl.
After the steak has rested, use a carving knife to carve against the grain at an angle. Serve the salsa over the carved meat and a side of grilled
Tortillas (to taste)
