Tri-Tip Tostada with Pepita Mexican-Style Pesto

 1 lb (500 g) Beef Tri-Tip
 Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
 0.33 cup pumpkin seeds
 3 tbsp olive oil, divided
 2 tbsp apple cider vinegar
 1 ripe medium avocado, cut into rough chunks
 Salt to taste
 4 corn tostada
 0.50 cup shredded iceberg lettuce
 0.25 large red onion, thinly sliced
 8 grape tomatoes, halved
 1 can (398 mL) refried beans

Slice the meat into thin strips and season with salt and pepper. Heat 1 tbsp oil in nonstick pan over medium-high heat. Add beef and stir-fry for 5 minutes, until browned but still pink in the centre. Remove from heat and keep warm.


Meanwhile, combine pumpkin seeds, olive oil, cider vinegar, avocado and salt in a food processor or blender container; blend until a pesto-like consistency.


Top each tostada with some lettuce, beef, refried beans, onion and tomato. Finish each with a spoon of the Mexican-style Pesto.
