• Wash and dry produce. • Peel and mince garlic; set aside ¼ tsp for step 3. Mince cilantro. Halve, peel, and thinly slice onion; mince a few slices until you have 1 tsp (2 tsp for 4 servings). Zest and quarter lime. Slice jalapeño into thin rounds, removing ribs and seeds for less heat; mince a few slices until you have ½ tsp. Core, deseed, and thinly slice green pepper.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in a small pot over medium-high heat. Add remaining garlic and cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. • Stir in rice, ¾ cup water (1½ cups for 4 servings), and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil, then cover and reduce heat to low. Cook until tender, 15-18 minutes. • Keep covered off heat until ready to serve.
• Meanwhile, in a small bowl, combine sour cream, cilantro, minced onion, 1 TBSP olive oil (2 TBSP for 4 servings), reserved ¼ tsp garlic, juice from two lime wedges (four wedges for 4), a pinch of minced jalapeño, a pinch of cumin (you’ll use the rest in the next step), salt, and pepper. Stir in water 1 tsp at a time until mixture reaches a drizzling consistency.
• Pat steak* dry with paper towels. Season all over with remaining cumin, salt, and pepper; rub to thoroughly coat. • Heat a large drizzle of oil in a large pan over medium-high heat. Add steak and cook to desired doneness, 3-6 minutes per side. • Turn off heat; transfer steak to a cutting board to rest. Wipe out pan.
• Heat a drizzle of oil in same pan over medium-high heat. Add green pepper, sliced onion, and a pinch of salt. Cook, stirring occasionally, until softened and lightly charred, 6-8 minutes. TIP: If veggies begin to brown too quickly, add a splash of water.
• Fluff rice with a fork; stir in lime zest, 1 TBSP butter (2 TBSP for 4 servings), salt, and pepper. • Thinly slice steak against the grain. • Divide rice between bowls. Top with veggies and steak. Drizzle steak with sauce. Top with as much sliced jalapeño as you like. Serve with remaining lime wedges on the side.
Steak is fully cooked when internal temperature reaches 145°.
