Directions for: Steak Burger with Summer Salsa and Swiss Cheese


Summer Salsa

1 cup (250 ml) bell peppers, (your choice), diced

1 cup (250 ml) tomatoes, seeded and diced

¼ cup (60 ml) onion, chopped

2 clove garlic, chopped

¾ cup (180 ml) strawberries, cut into quarters

½ cup (125 ml) peaches, diced

½ tsp (2 ml) chili powder


1 lb(s) (450 g) thin inside round steaks

Summer Salsa Burgers

1. Preheat the grill to medium heat. Tear off a large square of aluminum foil and add a square of parchment paper to keep food from sticking. Place fruits and vegetables in centre and add chili powder. Wrap sides over the food.

2. Fold the foil onto itself, pressing firmly. Tightly seal the papillotes at the ends. Handle carefully so as not to tear the foil. Papillotes are properly sealed when they swell up during cooking.

3. Cook on grill for 7–8 minutes. Sprinkle steaks with cumin and season with salt and pepper. Cook 4–5 minutes on the hot grill, turning them over just once. Heat the buns, fill with steaks and garnish with summer salsa, Swiss cheese and lettuce.


1. Cheese alternatives: Canadian Mozzarella, Cheddar, Provolone.
