Mojito strip steaks with pico de gallo recipe

Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Strip steaks are tender and full of flavor, so they’re a great choice for broiling or grilling. One steak will
generally weigh about 8 ounces when purchased raw because it’s a long, thick cut of meat. For portion control, we’ve called for 2 (8-ounce) steaks cut in half. Serve with grilled corn on the cob.
