2 10-oz. containers NatureSweet® Glorys® tomatoes, halved
2 tsp. kosher salt, divided use
1 tsp. fresh cracked pepper, divided use
3 tbsp. olive oil
2 tbsp. champagne vinegar
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tsp. lime zest
2 tsp. lime juice
1/3 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 oz. blue cheese, crumbled
2 tbsp. butter
1/4 cup panko breadcrumbs
2 tbsp. fresh chives, minced
1 tsp. ancho chili powder
1 tsp. smoked paprika
1/2 tsp. garlic powder
1 flat iron steak (1 pound per serving)
Garnish: Additional crumbled blue cheese and fresh chives


Preheat oven to 425° F.
Place tomatoes on a large, rimmed baking sheet. Season with 1/2 tsp. salt and 1/4 tsp. pepper. Drizzle with olive oil, and toss to coat. Place in preheated oven and roast until tomatoes are softened, approximately 12 minutes.
Using a slotted spoon, remove three-quarters of the tomatoes to a mesh strainer and place over bowl to drain. Set the remaining one-quarter of the tomatoes aside for topping the flat iron steak.
For vinaigrette, in a medium bowl whisk together the vinegar, garlic, lime zest, and lime juice. While whisking, stream in the extra virgin olive oil. Add the blue cheese, 1/2 tsp. salt, and 1/4 tsp. pepper; whisk to blend. Add the drained roasted tomatoes, whisk together, then set aside.
Meanwhile, place a cast-iron skillet over medium-low heat. Add in the butter and allow to melt. Add in the panko breadcrumbs and toast until golden, approximately 3-4 minutes. Transfer to a paper-towel-lined plate. Allow to cool for a few minutes, then toss in the minced chives, and set aside.
In a small bowl, mix together the chili powder, paprika, garlic powder, and remaining salt and pepper. Season both sides of the flat iron steak with the mixture.
Heat a grill pan over medium-high heat. Place the steaks onto the grill pan and cook, turning once, to desired doneness.
Place cooked steaks onto a large plate or platter, cover with aluminum foil and allow to rest for 5 minutes. Slice steaks into 1/4-inch slices.
To serve, stagger steak slices, top with vinaigrette and panko breadcrumbs. Garnish with reserved roasted Glorys® tomatoes, and top with blue cheese crumbles and chives.
