Beef & Avocado

1 lb beef tri tips - cubed 1-2"
sea salt and freshly ground pepper to taste
1 Tbsp olive oil
1/2 cup white wine
1 Tbsp finely chopped flat leaf parsley
2 Tbsp butter
1 lemon (zest + juice)
2 garlic cloves, finely minced
1 avocado, sliced

Preheat dutch oven over medium high heat.  Season beef with s&p.  Add olive oil to pan.  Let heat ~1 minute.  Add beef.  Do not move until crust has developed and meat moves without pulling ~ 4 minutes.  Flip to develop crust on the other side.  Remove from heat.  Deglaze with wine, scraping brown bits and reducing by half.  Add garlic, parsley and lemon zest then butter.  Return meat to pan to coat.  Then remove from heat.  Place on serving platter and top with avocado and lemon juice.
