  11. Cut up Steak, serve on Corn Tortillas and top with Avocado Corn Salsa

Notes

If you don’t like your steak medium rare, just cook a little longer. See cooking temps below, also note it depends on the thickness of your steak to how many minutes to cook on each side. I find it helpful to use a good digital thermometer to test the doneness.

  • 125F Rare – Center is bright red; pinkish towards the outside
  • 135F Medium Rare – Center is very pink; slightly brown towards the outside
  • 145F Medium – Center is light pink; outer portion is brown
  • 155F Medium Well – Center is slightly pink; outer portion is brown
  • 165F Well – Uniformly brown throughout
