Salsa Verde:
• 2 large green tomatoes
• ¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves
• ¼ cup small diced yellow onion
• 2 tbsp. white balsamic
• 1 tbsp. minced garlic
• 1 tbsp. grape seed oil
• 2 jalapenos, seeded

Dirty Rice:
• 1 tbsp. grape seed oil
• ¼ cup small diced yellow onion
• 1 cup cooked black beans
• 2 tbsp. small diced carrots
• ½ cup tomato juice
• 3 cups cooked white or brown rice
• ½ cup celery leaves, tips only
• 1 tbsp. Cajun spice

• 2 tbsp. grape seed oil
• 4 – 8 oz. rib eye steaks, trimmed
• 1 tbsp. sea or kosher salt
• 1 tsp. freshly ground black pepper

1. Dice the tomatoes, then puree them in a food processor or blender
2. Add the cilantro, onion, balsamic, garlic, oil and jalapenos to the mixture and puree again. Taste, then season with salt and pepper. Place in the refrigerator for at least an hour to allow the flavors to merge.
3. Warm the grape seed oil in a sauté pan over medium-high heat. Next, add the onions and cook, stirring frequently, until they’re slightly translucent, about 3 to 4 minutes.
4. Add the cooked beans and carrots, and allow to warm.
5. Add the tomato juice and reduce the heat to medium-low. Continue to cook until the juice has reduced to ¼ cup. About 3 to 4 minutes.
6. Ass the rice. Warm mixture, to blend the flavors, over medium-low heat for 5 minutes.
7. Once the rice has warmed and the juice has finished reducing, remove from heat and add the celery leaves. Taste and season to preference with the Cajun spice.
8. Warm the oil in a large sauté pan over high heat for 1 to 2 minutes. Season the steaks on both sides with the salt and pepper, and then add them to the pan. Reduce to medium-high heat and cook for 3 to 4 minutes.
9. Flip the steaks and repeat the process on the second side for about 3 to 4 minutes.
10. Remove steaks from the pan and allow them to rest for a few minutes. Serve over the dirty rice and finish with the salsa Verde.
