Pan Fried Polenta with Spicy Steak

This dish was quick to make and tasted great! I hope you enjoy it!

serves 6 ( 7 points +)

  • 4 tsp. canola oil divided
  • ¾ tsp. salt
  • ½ tsp. cumin
  • 1 tsp. chili powder
  • ¼ tsp. black pepper
  • 1-½ lbs. flank steak
  • 1 ( 16 oz) tube of polenta, sliced into 12 slices
  • ½ c. fresh cilantro
  • ½ c. queso fresco
  • ¾ c. refrigerated salsa ( or homemade)

Heat a large cast iron skillet over medium-high heat. Combine 1 tsp. oil with spices. Rub over steak. Cook steak until desired doneness. Let stand 10 minutes and slice thinly across the grain.
Meanwhile, brush polenta slices with remaining 1 T. oil. Cook for 3 minutes on each side or until browned.
Arrange 2 polenta slices on each plate. Top with 3 oz. steak, salsa, cilantro and queso fresco.
