  As a child, my mother loved the first day of school. Because school usually started after the Labor Day holiday, she called it Tempting Tuesday. It was always really exciting for us because dinner time was when we all sat down and talked about our day and just had a good time together over a nice dinner! My favorite Tempting Tuesday was the Steak with Carrot Salsa. The flavors are explosive and I'm sure your children will enjoy coming home to this Back to School treat...Enjoy!

2 pounds skirt steak, trimmed and cut into 4 equal portions
1 garlic cloves, minced
1 tablespoon cumin
Salt and pepper
1/4 cup chopped onions
1 tablespoon olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
1 cup carrot salsa
2 cups water

Place the steaks between sheets of wax paper, then pound until each steak is about ¼ inch thick. Place the pounded steaks in a zip lock plastic bag. Add the cumin, garlic, onions, salt and pepper. Refrigerate for 30 minute. Be sure the steaks are evenly covered. In a large sauce pan, heat the oil and butter over medium heat. Place the steaks into the skillet and cook for 3 minutes per side. Add the carrot and water. Reduce the heat, cover and cook for about 20 to 25 minutes. Add more water if necessary. Uncover the sauce pan and using a fork mash the carrots salsa into steak if desired. Cover and cook 5 minutes more. Serve over white rice. Makes 4 servings.
This recipe works with any of salsas.  See link below.  Enjoy
