- 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

- 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.
- 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.
- 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.
