Mexican BBQ - Mexican Steak, Recipes with Chipotle Paste

Mexican Steak

Steak has always been a bit of a favourite at a lot of people’s homes. Coming back from a long day’s work and stopping off at the local butcher to pick up a sirloin is a real treat. During the summer a lot of people tend to cook steaks outside on a BBQ, and we find this gives them the best flavour. But this simple Mexican steak recipe will work just as well on a kitchen grill.

Our Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste is a great little condiment to just be put on the side of a cooked steak. Its sweetness and smokiness really compliments the flavour of the meat. You could also make some of our Chipotle Butter recipe to go on the side with your steak. However, if you have time we highly recommend you try this Mexican steak recipe. You need to plan at least an hour ahead to let the meat take in all the flavour from the Gran Luchito Chipotle Paste.

In the pictures below we served the steak with a green salad, along with our recipe for Pico de Gallo and Gran Luchito Soft Taco Wraps, but we also recommend trying it with our Crispy Homemade Chips recipe.
