Ingredients

  • 1/2 poblano or Anaheim pepper, stem and seeds removed
  • 1 unpeeled garlic clove
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh cilantro
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin, divided
  • 1/8 teaspoon plus 1/4 teaspoon chili powder, divided
  • 2 beef tenderloin steaks (4 ounces each)
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • Dash salt and pepper

Nutritional Facts

1 steak with 2 tablespoons relish equals 208 calories, 11 g fat (3 g saturated fat), 71 mg cholesterol, 133 mg sodium, 3 g carbohydrate, 1 g fiber, 24 g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 3 lean meat, 1/2 fat.

Directions

  1. Broil the pepper half and garlic clove 4 in. from the heat until skins blister, about 10-12 minutes. Immediately place in a bowl; cover and let stand for 15-20 minutes.
  2. Peel pepper and garlic skin; finely chop and place in a small bowl. Stir in the cilantro, 1/4 teaspoon cumin and 1/8 teaspoon chili powder; set aside.
  3. Rub steaks with oil. Combine the salt, pepper and remaining cumin and chili powder; rub over steaks. In a nonstick skillet, cook steaks over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand for 5 minutes. Serve with poblano relish. Yield: 2 servings.
Editor's Note: Wear disposable gloves when cutting hot peppers; the oils can burn skin. Avoid touching your face.
