Steaks with Poblano Relish Recipe

Spice up mealtime with these juicy beef tenderloins topped with a zippy, Southwestern-style poblano pepper and garlic relish. Billie Moss of Walnut Creek, California shared the recipe.
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. + standing Cook: 10 min. YIELD:2 servings

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

Directions

  • 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 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 meat 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.
