  • 12 ounces tomatillos, husks and stems removed
  • 3 or 4 dried chiles de árbol, stems, seeds removed
  • 1/4 cup fresh cilantro leaves
  • 1 large clove garlic, coarsely chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • Flour tortillas (optional)
  • Fresh cilantro leaves (optional)
Preparation
  1. Place tomatillos and chiles in medium saucepan; add enough water to cover. Bring to a boil; cook 5 to 8 minutes or until tomatillos are just tender, stirring occasionally. Drain.
  2. Place tomatillo mixture, 1/4 cup cilantro and garlic in food processor or blender container. Cover; process until finely chopped, but not pureed. Season with salt and black pepper, as desired. Set aside.
  3. Meanwhile press 1/4 teaspoon black pepper evenly onto flat iron steaks. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place steaks in skillet; cook 13 to 15 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.
  4. Carve steaks across the grain into thin slices; season with salt and black pepper, as desired. Spoon tomatillo sauce over steak. Serve in flour tortillas, if desired. Garnish with additional cilantro, if desired.
