spicy grilled ribeye cap with avocado-mango salad


  • 1 1/4 pound beef Ribeye Cap Steaks
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • RUB
  • juice of one lime
  • 1 medium jalapeno pepper, minced
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 large mango, sliced
  • 1 medium avocado, sliced
  • 4 thin slices red onion
  • 1/4 cup queso fresco, crumbled


Combine 1 teaspoon lime juice and remaining rub ingredients; reserve remaining lime juice for Avocado-Mango Salad. Press rub evenly onto beef steaks. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 9 to 13 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 9 to 14 minutes) for medium rare to medium doneness, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile, prepare Avocado-Mango Salad. Combine mango, avocado and onion in medium bowl; sprinkle with cheese and drizzle with reserved lime juice, tossing gently to coat. Season with salt and black pepper, as desired.

Serve steaks with Avocado Mango Salad.

Cook's Tip: For less heat, remove interior membranes and seeds from jalapeño pepper.
