Poblano Stuffed Round Steak
round steak or flank steak, or even chicken breasts. if you are using chicken you need 4 large breasts
poblano peppers about 4 inches long
pepper jack cheese, 2 slices cut in half, plus extra for garnish
chorizo, casing removed
fresh cilantro, chopped, or to taste
each, salt and pepper
salsa verde (green salsa), plus extra to eat with later
1Put olive oil in pan and saute the onion until translucent, add garlic, cook a minute more, add chorizo, and cook until cooked through.
2In a big bowl put the cream cheese, dump the chorizo mixture over and stir to combine. Stir in cilantro, lime juice, salt and pepper
3Remove stems from poblanos, (you cold use anaheims if you like they are not so spicy). Slit pepper from top to bottom and remove seeds and veins. We like spicy, so I just leave them in.
4Line each pepper with a half slice of pepper jack cheese, then stuff with 1/4 chorizo mixture.
5You want 4 pieces of steak each big enough to go around a pepper when pounded out. Maybe from 3/4 to a pound.
6Put each piece of steak in a zip lock bag, and pound out until big enough to go around the pepper.
7Put a stuffed pepper in the middle of your piece of steak, seam side down.
8Roll steak around the pepper, secure with butchers twine. At this point you can cook, or cook the next day.
9Put a disposable slow cooker liner in your cooker, put steaks in, and pour the salsa over.
10Cover, cook on low for 6 to 8 hours
11We like this with yellow rice and sour cream and diced pepper jack cheese on the side.
