Let's get grilling

2 Place the steak in storage bag and add in all ingredients for marinade. Let it sit overnight in the refrigerator 12-24 hours.
3 Fire up the charcoal grill using Kingsford Mesquite charcoal and heat to 400°F.Let the coals turn grey but not to ash.
4 Next, cook each side of the steak for approximately 3 minutes. Remove from high heat,off the side away from coals to rest and slow cook for about 10-15 minutes.
5 Pre-heat the cast iron skillet while grilling steak with 2 tablespoons of olive oil. Char the veggies over the fire for 2-3 minutes. Then, remove from fire rough chop and place in the cast iron skillet and sear veggies for 2-3 more minutes, and remove cast iron skillet from grill.
6 Slice the avocados in half and remove pit. With a spoon scoop the avocado out of the skin and place in med size bowl. Add 2 teaspoons of sea salt and squeeze one whole lime. Smash the avocado with a fork and mix up salt and lime juice.
