Black Beans And Rice:


Black Beans and Rice: In large saucepan, heat oil over medium-high heat; cook garlic, chili powder, coriander and cumin, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Stir in 1-1/4 cups water, rice, beans, strained tomatoes, salt and pepper. Bring to boil; cover and cook until rice is tender, about 20 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand, covered, until liquid is absorbed, about 5 minutes.

Meanwhile, stir together coriander, cumin and half each of the salt and pepper; rub all over steaks.

In large nonstick skillet, heat half of the oil over medium-high heat; cook steaks, turning once, until medium-rare, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to plate; let stand for 5 minutes before slicing thinly.

Meanwhile, in same skillet, heat remaining oil over medium heat; cook onion and chili powder until softened, about 3 minutes. Stir in kale, red pepper, 3 tbsp water, and remaining salt and pepper; cook, stirring often, until kale is wilted and peppers are tender-crisp, about 6 minutes.

Divide rice mixture among bowls; top with kale mixture and steak.
