What You'll Need
  • 1 - 11/2 pounds steak tips
  • salt and pepper, or steak seasoning to taste
  • 1 medium avocado
  • 2 tablespoons Serrano Chile Balsamic Vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon garlic infused olive oil
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground chipotle chile
  1. Season the steak tips with salt and pepper, or a steak seasoning rub of your choice. Let the steak marinate for at least an hour. Divide the meat between four metal skewers.
  2. Heat the broiler for 10 minutes. While the broiler is warming, make the gastrique.
  3. In a small food processor, puree the avocado, vinegar, olive oil, salt and chipotle chile until it is smooth. Stop and scrape down the bowl if needed. Place the gastrique into a small serving dish.
  4. Broil the steak for 3-5 minutes per side, depending on how done you like your steak. Serve the skewers with the avocado gastrique dipping sauce.

Interesting! I Googled and found a product called Spicy Serrano Honey Balsamic Vinegar. Is that it, or is it something you make from scratch?
