How to make it

  • Preparation:
  • Prepare your charcoal or gas grill.
  • In a small bowl, combine the salt, black pepper and garlic powder.
  • When the grill is very hot, place the steak on the grill, fattier side down. Sprinkle on half of the salt mixture and cook until nicely browned, 6 to 9 minutes. Flip, sprinkle on the rest and cook for another 6 to 9 minutes, or until done to your liking.
  • Let it rest for a few minutes, then thinly slice against the grain and serve with lime wedges, avocado slices, black beans, heated, and Pasilla chile sauce (see below). Warmed tortillas would also go well.
  • Pastilla Chili Sauce Preparation:
  • While steak is cooking, place the tomatillo quarters in a medium saucepan. Add enough water to cover halfway. Cover and cook over medium heat until very soft, about 8-10 minutes. Strain, reserving 2/3 cup of the water, mash and set aside.
  • Set a cast-iron skillet over high heat; add the garlic and sauté about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in the chile powder, 2/3 cup of the reserved tomatillo water, the tomatillos and heat for a couple minutes. Done.

    Very nice I love Tex -Mex, do you roast your tomatillos on the grill also? and can fresh roasted Pasilla peppers be used in place of the dried pasilla pepper.

    Thank you! My friend Rita started me on these! Now I use my cast iron skillet right on top of the stove. I get lazy to use the grill....
