Directions

  1. Pour rice, coconut milk, and 2 cups water into a pot on the stove. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer about 20 minutes until all liquid is absorbed.

  3. Preheat grill to high heat. Place steak on the grill and cook 6-8 minutes on each side until internal temperature reaches 160 degrees for medium doneness. Remove from grill and let rest 10 minutes. Slice thinly against the grain.
  4. In a bowl, mix together pineapple, avocado, mango, and onion. Toss with the zested and juiced lime, jalapeño, and chopped cilantro and let rest 10 minutes.
  5. Combine together soy sauce, pineapple juice, and remaining ginger and garlic in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil and continue cooking until reduced by half. Pour glaze over sliced steak.
