*It’s a Showstopper!

The dramatic visual look of a platter of grilled salsa verde steak with a running stream of avocado salsa verde and dollops of salsa verde goat cheese is so inviting! This dish received so many ooh and aah! #PrettyFood! Don’t you just want to dive into the platter of tastiness and make yourself a tartine? Note: A tartine is a French term for an open-face breakfast sandwich. Here in America, we have added grilled bread to the description with toppings.

*Super Creative!

What a fun open-face sandwich with a fancy name! I really enjoyed incorporating Sam’s Fresh Salsa Verde into every layer of this sandwich. What a unique twist on what could have been an ordinary open-face steak sandwich? Right!?!


Every bite of of my Quadruple-Boost Salsa Verde Flank Steak Tartine is packed with flavor! Each element could be used in many other ways! 4 recipes for the price of one. HaHa!

1.The Salsa Verde Marinade is simple to make and really penetrates the meat with flavor. The acid in the salsa verde helps to break down the fibers of the beef making it tender.

2. The Salsa Verde Goat Cheese I can’t speak highly enough. The creamy texture is packed with fresh cilantro and salsa verde, and is not only delicious on a Tartine but any sandwich, cracker, or cheese filled celery. There are so many appetizers you can make with salsa verde goat cheese.

3. Avocado Salsa Verde Topping has a beautiful velvet texture! This salsa could easily be served as a dip for chips.

4. Salsa Verde Sautéed Peppers has easily become my go topping for a plethora of dishes: grilled chicken, hamburgers, pork chops, pizza, warm brie cheese, and scrambled eggs.

To Prepare Steak: In a 1-gallon plastic bag or marination bowl, mix Sam’s Salsa Verde, canola oil, Worcestershire sauce, apple cider vinegar, cumin, salt, sugar, red pepper flakes. Place steak in marinate for at least 30 minutes, and up to 2 hours. Meanwhile, prepare goat cheese, avocado salsa verde, salsa verde peppers, and bread.

To Prepare Salsa Verde Goat Cheese Spread: In a medium serving bowl, thoroughly mix Sam’s Fresh Salsa Verde, goat cheese, mascarpone cheese, cilantro, green onions, and lime juice. Stir in a pinch of salt, and set aside.

To Prepare Avocado Salsa Verde: In a medium serving bowl, add Sam’s Fresh Salsa Verde. Chop avocado into 1/2-inch chunks and toss in salsa verde. Stir in cilantro, and set aside. Sat to taste. Add a second avocado, if you are feeding 6 or more.

To Prepare Buttered Bread:

Place 6 pieces of buttered bread or rolls under broiler, and cook until golden brown. Watch carefully so the bread does not burn!

To Prepare Salsa Verde Peppers: In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, add oil and peppers. Sauté peppers for 2 minutes, add Sam’s Fresh Salsa Verde, and reduce heat to simmer. Cook 1 minutes, and remove from stove-top. Salt, if desired.

To Cook Flank Steak: Remove steak from marinade and pat dry with paper towels. Season lightly with salt and pepper.

To Grill: Preheat grill to medium-high. Place steak on grill and cook for 5-6 minutes on each side medium-rare. Cooking time varies due to the thickness of steak.

To Broil: Preheat oven broiler to high. Place steak on broiler pan and cook, turning once halfway through, until cooked to your liking, 5-6 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer meat to cutting board and let rest for 6-8 minutes.

To Cook in skillet: Heat the skillet over high heat and drizzle with oil. Cook flank steak for about 3 minutes per side until medium rare.

Remove flank steak from heat source, and allow to rest. Carve steak across the grain into thin slices. Season with salt and pepper, as desired.

To present: Arrange Salsa Verde Peppers on a cutting board or large serving platter, leaving a space in the center for the beef. Fan sliced flank steak down the center, and spoon Avocado Salsa Verde like a stream running down the center of the meat. Dollop with Salsa Verde Goat Cheese, and sprinkle with cilantro micro-greens. Serve with lime slices. Serves 6.
