Easy Grilled Steak Avocado Toast Recipe
Howdy! Chef Alli Here. Let’s Get You Cookin’…. Shall We?? 🙂
Lots of folks enjoy avocado toast because of the health benefits. That’s all fine and dandy, but I enjoy avocado toast just because they are GOOD. Add some juicy and tender sliced steak and you’ve got a speedy meal that’s oh-so-satisfying.
Truthfully, I’m glad I enjoy a healthy beef dish like this one since both avocados and steak are pretty amazing super foods, in my book. Steak provides protein and iron (among other things), while avocados are loaded with potassium and fiber.
And you know what else I appreciate about Grilled Steak Avocado Toast? It’s hearty and filling…. and you get to CHEW. Call me crazy, but I find chewing to be a key attribute for feeling full and satisfied when I’m finished with a meal.

How to make grilled steak avocado toast
**Print the full recipe from the RECIPE CARD at the bottom of this post
First and foremost: get that beef out of the fridge and onto the counter to de-chill and relax before you cook it. This is essential for a great steak experience! Season the steaks on both sides and then let them rest and do their thing. **Do not skip this important step!!
Preheat the grill pan or grill before ever adding the beef. A preheated cooking source is important so that when the beef meets the heat, you get good sizzle that says “caramelization is on the way!”.
Grill the steaks until the internal temperature reaches 125-130 degrees F., then remove to a platter and cover to allow residual heat to finish cooking the steaks to 135-145 degrees F., perfectly medium-rare.
While the steaks are grilling, slather the bread with mayo and grill until golden brown. Using a fork, mash the avocados until just slightly chunky, stirring in the minced chipotles; be sure to season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Divide the mashed avocado mixture between the slices of toasted bread. Slice the steak across the grain into 1/4-inch thick slices; nestle a few slices into the top of each avocado toast. Sprinkle with a few diced tomatoes, if desired. Beautiful! Serve at once, alongside a chilled glass of Boot Hill Vodka Bail Lemonade.
Answers to Common Questions Asked About This Recipe
Which tools are helpful for making avocado toast with grilled steak?
Chef’s knife – a good chef’s knife is such an essential kitchen tool! In this recipe, you’ll need one for slicing the eye of round roast into very thin slices, like deli roast beef. . **If taken care of properly, a good quality chef’s knife will last a lifetime, definitely make it worth the initial investment.
Large wooden cutting board with a channel – a good (large) wooden cutting board is what supports your chef’s knife, providing a surface that gives to the edge of your blade each time you make a cut. One side of the cutting board will feature the channel around the edge. This is the side that you should slice meats on – the meat juices funnel into the channel so they cannot run off the cutting board to create a mess on the counter. Use the other side of the cutting board for cutting and dicing fruits and vegetables.
Knife straightener – a hand-held knife straightener (often called a knife sharpener) is what keeps your chef’s knife blade straight so that it can make a precise, clean cut. Run your knife (never a serrated knife, though) through the straightener 2-3 times each and every time you prepare to use it to keep the blade in good shape.
Meat thermometer – I prefer an instant-read probe, but a traditional meat thermometer works fine, as well. It’s also handy to use a digital thermometer that has dual probes that can notify you when the meat raises to the temperature you’ve programmed for.
Why does this recipe call for mayonnaise instead of butter for grilling the bread? That seems weird.
Actually, anytime you’re making grilled bread or a grilled sandwich, substitute mayonnaise in place of butter or margarine. Mayonnaise provides superior browning which adds tremendous FLAVOR to any grilled bread. Do it!!
Can I use low-carb bread to make avocado toast?
Absolutely! There are several low-carb breads available at your local grocer that make delicious avocado toast.
If I’m in a hurry, can I just toast the bread in my toaster?
Sure thing – this works fine in a pinch. The end result won’t be quite a luscious, but it definitely helps to speed up the whole process a bit.
What cocktail pairs well with this beef dish?
This recipe was straight-up created to pair with Boot Hill Vodka Basil Lemonade Cocktails in a Can. I found the combination to be quite delicious, and I think you will, too. I love being able to pour this vodka lemonade cocktail right from the can over ice – so easy and the flavor pairing is spot on!
You can also serve Boot Hill Vodka Basil Lemonade Cocktails as a lemonade spritzer by adding ginger ale or club soda to the mix. Light, lovely, and bubbly….and quite addictive, btw.
Where can I find Boot Hill Vodka Basil Lemonade Cocktails?
You can get Vodka Basil Lemonade Cocktails at liquor stores across Kansas or online right here.
Boot Hill Distillery is located in Dodge City, Kansas, right on top of the original Boot Hill Cemetery. Visit their tasting room Wed – Sun (3-11pm) to experience their premium soil-to-sip spirits, or call ahead to arrange a tour of the distillery. It is such a fun experience!
What are chipotles?
Chipotles are jalapenos that have been smoked and dried, then packed in adobo sauce. They add a sweet smokiness to any dish. And, yes, they are HOT! A little goes a long way.
Where can I find chipotles?
You will find all kinds of chipotles and chipotle sauce in the Hispanic section of larger grocery stores. I typically purchase whole chipotles packed in adobo that I process until smooth in my food processor. You can keep them in your fridge and use just like any other condiment.
Can I use any type of steak to make avocado toast?
Surely. We just prefer rib eye steak because it’s rich and beefy. When cooked to medium rare doneness, it’s tender and juicy every time.
When should you serve avocado toast?
I think most people think of avocado toast as a breakfast or brunch item, and I tend to agree.
However, because I enjoy it so much, especially when topped with slices of steak, I eat avocado toast at lunchtime and also when I want something substantial for dinner, yet not too filling.
