Ingredients

cooking spray

3 spray(s)

uncooked lean flank steak

12 oz

yellow pepper(s)

2 medium, quartered, seeded

poblano chile

1 medium, quartered, seeded

ground cumin

1½ tsp

dried oregano

1 tsp, crumbled

table salt

½ tsp

cilantro

1 cup(s), leaves

fat free salsa

¾ cup(s), green (tomatillo or green chile salsa)

reduced-fat sour cream

2 Tbsp

Instructions

  1. Preheat broiler. Line a large rimmed baking sheet with nonstick foil, or line with regular foil and coat with cooking spray (or just coat with cooking spray, if you prefer).
  2. Place steak and peppers on prepared pan; coat with cooking spray.
  3. In a small cup, combine cumin, oregano and salt; sprinkle on both sides of steak and peppers.
  4. Broil 3 to 4 inches from heat, turning peppers and steak halfway through cooking, about 4 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare, or longer until desired degree of doneness. Remove steak to a cutting board; let stand 5 minutes.
  5. Meanwhile, put cilantro, salsa and sour cream in blender or food processor; process until smooth.
  6. Slice steak thinly across the grain. Put steak and peppers on a serving platter and serve with salsa mixture. Yields about 2 1/2 ounces steak, 3 pieces pepper and 1/4 cup salsa mixture per serving.
Notes
If you don’t like your food too spicy, use a mild green salsa. Also consider using three bell peppers and omitting the poblano.
