These steaks are filled with fantastic Southwestern flavor. This is a great way to turn a less than perfect steak into a wonderful meal. Ideal for weeknight meals.  Serve with your favorite grilled or baked sides.

What You'll Need

  • 4 1-inch tenderloin steaks (thick)
  • 4 slices cheese (Monterey Jack)
  • 4 chili peppers (whole mild green, fresh or canned)
  • 2 tablespoons/30 ml. olive oil
  • For Spice Rub:
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL. paprika
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL. white pepper
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL. cayenne
  • 1 teaspoon/5 mL. brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL. cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL. salt (sea)
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL. black pepper

How to Make It

1. Preheat grill for medium heat.  

2. Combine paprika, white pepper, cayenne, brown sugar and cumin together in a small bowl.

3. Cut a slit into the side of each steak, making a pocket large enough to hold the cheese and green chili. Place one slice of cheese and one whole chili into each steak pocket. Brush each steak lightly with olive. Rub spice mixture over the steaks. Place steaks on hot grill over medium heat and cook for about 8 minutes, turning once or until steaks reach desired doneness.

4. Once cooked, removed stuffed steaks from heat and place onto a large plate.  Cover loosely with aluminum foil and let rest for 5 minutes.  Serve with your favorite sides.
