Carnita Con Chile



Ingredients:
2 Omaha Steaks Flat Iron Steaks
12 ounces tomatillos, husks and stems removed
3 or 4 dried chiles de árbol, stems, seeds removed
¼ cup fresh cilantro leaves
1 large clove garlic, coarsely chopped
¼ teaspoon ground black pepper
Flour tortillas (optional)
Fresh cilantro leaves (optional)

Procedures:
  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, ¼ 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 ¼ 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.
