Green Chilies Steak

Pamela Rappaport


I am preparing this old standby tonight and decided to post it. You can make it as spicy as you like. While it's traditional to serve it with rice, pasta works well too!

How to Make Green Chilies Steak


  1. Heat 1/2 the oil in a dutch oven. Add half of the beef and 1 T. flour. (you can dredge the beef if you want but why bother)
  2. Sautee until browned, stirring occasionally.
  3. Remove from the pot and repeat with the remaining oil, beef and flour.
  4. When the second batch is almost browned, add the onion and garlic. Cook until transparent.
  5. Add back the first batch of beef then add salt and pepper, oregano, un-drained can of Rotel, un-drained tomatoes, and beef broth. Stir to combine.
  6. Cover and simmer for approximately 2 hours. If it gets to thick at any point add water. If the tomatoes are too acidic when you taste it add a teaspoon of sugar. It's done when the beef is fork tender. The sauce should have thickened to a gravy consistency.
  7. Serve over cooked rice.
