Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Heat broiler, with rack 4 inches from heat. Line a rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil; set aside. In a medium bowl, gently stir together avocado, radishes, cilantro, jalapeno, lime juice, and oil; season with salt. Cover with plastic wrap, pressing it directly against surface of salsa (to prevent discoloring); set aside.

  • Arrange steak on prepared baking sheet. Rub both sides with cumin; season generously with salt and pepper. Broil without turning until well browned, 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer steak to a cutting board; tent with foil, and let rest 5 minutes.

  • While the steak is broiling, stack and wrap tortillas in a dampened kitchen towel; microwave until hot and pliable, 1 to 2 minutes. (Alternatively, wrap in foil, and warm in oven in lower third, 5 minutes.)

  • Cut steak crosswise into 2-inch-wide pieces; slice thinly on the diagonal. Dividing evenly, place beef on tortillas; top with salsa. Serve with lime wedges, if desired.

Cook's Notes

To clean radishes, place them in a bowl of cold water; swish around. Drain, and dry on paper towels. Before rinsing radishes with leafy tops, trim greens down to about 1 inch. Then with the tip of a sharp knife, scrape around the base of the greens, and pinch off the tiny root.

My husband will only eat radishes in this dish, so when we get some in our CSA box, we make this. We use flank steak because we typically have it on hand in the freezer. We grill the meat, which makes this a great no-heat-inside summer dinner. It's also simple and fast, so we often make it on a weeknight.

I thought this was a very easy meal, and quite good. I used a Rib--eye steak and grilled it outside, then sliced it very thinly. I also used two avocados and a finely chopped jalapeno instead of the pickled one. My salsa was a little more creamy than the photo, but it was great.

Angel hair cabbage is great if you want to replace it for the radishess still adds the crunch with great flavor.
