Nutritional Facts

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


  1. Broil pepper half and garlic clove 4 in. from heat until skin on pepper blisters, about 10-12 minutes. Immediately place pepper and garlic in a bowl; cover and let stand 15-20 minutes.
  2. Peel pepper and garlic, discarding skins; finely chop and place in a small bowl. Stir in cilantro, 1/4 teaspoon cumin and 1/8 teaspoon chili powder; set aside.
  3. Rub steaks with oil. Combine salt, pepper and remaining cumin and chili powder; rub over steaks. In a nonstick skillet, cook steaks over medium-high heat 5-7 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Let stand 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.
