Preparation

Salsa preparation: In a bowl, mix diced mango with the rest of the salsa’s ingredients. Refrigerate until ready to use.

Steak spice mixture - Into a mortar, place all spices and crush until a relatively fine powder is obtained. Reserve.

Heat BBQ to medium (approximately 400°F or 200°C).

In the meantime, spread steak spices onto both sides of the steaks and press well to make sure spices adhere.

Turn off heat on one side of the BBQ to create indirect heat.

Brush steaks with olive oil and place on the grill on the side of BBQ where the heat is turned off.

Close BBQ lid and cook steaks for 2 minutes.

Using tongs, turn steaks one-quarter turn.

Turn the steaks over onto the grill and cook for another 2 minutes (for medium-rare steak) with the lid closed.

Remove from BBQ and let steaks sit in a foil-covered plate for 3 minutes.

Serve with mango and asparagus salsa.
