Directions

Preparation

Preheat grill to high. Stack tortillas and wrap in heavy-duty foil. Combine oil, 1 teaspoon chipotle powder, and 1/2 teaspoon salt in a small dish. Rub mixture into both sides of steak. Place the tortilla stack on the coolest part of the grill or upper warming rack, if possible, and heat, flipping once, until warmed through and very pliable.

Meanwhile, grill the steak for 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium, or until desired doneness. Grill pineapple rings until moderately charred, 1 to 2 minutes per side. Remove the tortillas, steak, and pineapple from the grill. Let the steak rest for at least 5 minutes before slicing very thinly crosswise into strips.

Meanwhile, dice the pineapple and transfer to a medium bowl. Add bell pepper, onion, cilantro, vinegar, the remaining pinch of chipotle powder, and the remaining 1/2 teaspoon salt; toss to combine. Serve the sliced steak in the warm tortillas with the pineapple salsa.

Makes 6 servings.

  • The pineapple salsa was fabulous!! I also used someone's suggestion and put a jalapeno into the salsa. This made the dish pretty spicy, but I would definitely make the salsa again and try it on other types of meat/fish etc! I also think it was much better without the corn tortillas! - 8/22/10

  • It was "just good"! The pineapple flavor was a bit overwhelming. I would have given this a "5 star INCREDIBLE" if the recipe had included jalapeno peppers. I added them (about 1 lg pepper) just to give it that little kick that I like in my foods and they helped to mellow out the pineapple flavor. - 8/12/10
