3-Ingredient Grilled Steak, Pineapple & Avocado
3-Ingredient Grilled Steak, Pineapple & Avocado


2 pounds New York strip steak, about 3 (1-inch thick) steaks

1 1/2 teaspoons kosher salt, divided, plus more

1 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, plus more

1 pineapple, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch rounds, center core removed, divided

3 tablespoons olive oil, plus more for grill

2 avocados

Season steak with 1 teaspoon salt and 1 teaspoon pepper. Let sit at room temperature at least 1 hour.

Meanwhile, make pineapple dressing by puréeing 1 pineapple round, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 2 tablespoons water in a blender until smooth. Add 3 tablespoons oil and blend until smooth; set aside.

Prepare a grill for medium-high heat or heat a grill pan over medium-high; oil grate or pan. Grill steaks and remaining pineapple rounds, turning occasionally, until pineapple is lightly charred and an instant-read thermometer inserted into the center of steak registers 120 degrees, 8–10 minutes for medium-rare (pineapple may take longer to cook than steak).

Transfer steak to a cutting board. Let sit at least 15 minutes, then thinly slice. Transfer pineapple to a platter and tent with foil to keep warm.

Cut avocados in half crosswise around pit, then carefully peel off skin with your hands. Slice each half crosswise into 1/2-inch rings.

Arrange sliced steak and avocado on platter with pineapple. Drizzle with pineapple dressing; season with salt and pepper. Makes 4 to 6 servings.
