My husband asked me to make his steak ranchero style, so naturally I went to Zaar to look up a recipe and to my surprise there was none. Well, I've fixed that! Here is one adapted from Del Monte!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Mix tomatoes, garlic, lime juice, cumin, beans, green onions, jalapeno and cilantro in bowl; set aside.
  2. Season meat with salt and pepper, if desired. Cook over hot coals (or broil) 3 to 5 minutes per side or until done as desired.
  3. Slice meat thin and top with tomato mixture.
  4. Serve over rice and garnish with lime wedges and additional cilantro, if desired. Enjoy!

Very good! I used the basic recipe but changed it a bit. I made this recipe to help clean out my pantry and freezer so I used only 1/2 pound of round steaks, a lot less green onions (only had 2 green onions), skipped the cilantro and parsley and used the whole can of kidney beans (which I know is more than 1 cup). For the tomatoes I used a can of tomatoes with jalapenos plus I added the 1 jalapeno chopped. I also changed the directions slightly by cooking everything in a skillet (with the steak cut into strips) - and tossing it with the rice to serve. Thanks for a very easy and enjoyable recipe!

Really enjoyed this recipe, but then again we love the flavors of the Southwest. Like the other reviewer I did use a whole can of beans (black instead of kidney) and I did up the cumin based on personal preference. Will definitely make this again. Made for the Cook-A-Thon in memory of Sharon's husband.
