Steak from Hell Salsa (courtesy of Steven Raichlen)

If you haven’t figured this out already, I am a massive fan of Steven Raichlen’s BBQ Bible book. So, I have hijacked that which I like and tried to make it my own. For this Steak from Hell recipe, the steaks are fine, but the salsa is amazing and easy. I’ve changed it up slightly below:

  • 2 to 4 dried chiles de arbol (I use more, but I like it hot) – they come in a bag at any Mexican grocery store and keep forever
  • 2 large ripe tomatoes (I use tomatoes on the vine, but whatever you like)
  • 1/3 medium-sized yellow onion
  • 3 tablespoons cilantro
  • 2 teaspoons lime juice
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 2-3 cloves garlic

 

Soak the chiles in a bowl of warm water about 20 minutes. Roast the tomatoes on the grill until the skin is charred and blistered on all sides, maybe 6 – 8 minutes. Drain the chiles and remove the seeds if you prefer a bit milder. Place all ingredients in a blender and process to a coarse paste.

I love this with the Sprout’s pollo asado and Costco tortillas I put on My Favorite “Holy Crap, That’s Good” Off the Shelf Items page and some avocado or just drizzled over some scramble eggs for breakfast…blam!
