Pioneer Woman Cooks - Marinated Steak
I have been wanting to make a Cafe Rio Creamy Tomatillo Dressing for quite a while. I finally stopped procrastinating when I saw this recipe for Marinated Flank Steak I know it would make a PERFECT salad!
I added the marinade to a Tri-tip instead of Flank Steak only because it was a sale at my grocery store and it was such a good deal that I could not pass it up! I would love to make this again for some soft tacos I think it would be delish! This salad was a home-run! The combination of the spicy dressing with smokey tri-tip was wonderful. I added some corn tortilla chips that I baked in the oven and Queso Fresco to make a delicious combination. I got the smallest tri-tip at the store but still had enough left over for both of us to have salads for lunch the next day and I made some nachos for dinner. Love it!
