Ingredients

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 beef Flat Iron Steaks. Heat large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Place steaks in skillet; cook 11 to 14 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.
