No recipe image available.Reduced calorie papaya salsa with beef flank steak.

Recipe Ingredients:

1 medium papaya, peeled, seeded and chopped (2 cups)
1 medium cucumber, seeded and chopped (1 1/2 cups)
1/2 cup chopped onion
1/4 cup snipped cilantro
1/4 cup vegetable oil
1/4 cup vinegar
2 packets Equal® sweetener or 3/4 teaspoon Equal® for Recipes
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1/2 cup reduced-calorie clear Italian salad dressing
2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/2 teaspoon dry mustard
1/4 teaspoon lemon-pepper seasoning
1 1/4 to 1 1/2-pound beef flank steak

Cooking Directions:

  1. To make salsa, in a bowl, combine papaya, cucumber, onion and cilantro. In a small screw-top jar combine oil, vinegar, Equal® sweetener, salt and pepper; shake to mix well. Pour over papaya mixture; toss to coat. Cover and chill.
  2. Meanwhile, stir together salad dressing, soy sauce, mustard and lemon-pepper seasoning. Score steak on both sides, making shallow cuts at 1-inch intervals diagonally across meat in a diamond pattern. Place steak in a plastic bag set in a shallow dish; pour in dressing mixture. Close bag. Marinate in the refrigerator for 6 to 24 hours, turning the bag several times.
  3. Drain steak, reserving the marinade. Grill steak on an uncovered grill directly over medium coals for 12 to 14 minutes or until medium-rare, turning once and brushing frequently with reserved marinade during the first 8 minutes.
  4. To serve, diagonally slice meat across the grain into very thin slices. Serve with salsa.
