Peppered Steaks with Salsa Recipe

We grill all year, and beef is so good cooked outdoors. The simple marinade makes the steak very juicy. We enjoy them with the refreshing salsa and tortillas. —Robin Hyde, Lincoln, Nebraska

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Dec. 10, 2013

"Let's face it this is eye of round so it was a little chewy and the texture was firm. However it does provide a nice piece of lean beef if that's what you are looking for. The marinade was too spicy for me. I did like the flavour will try this again without chili peppers."
