Zippety Doo Dah! This is fantastic. I usually like my steaks naked ( the meat, not me) but I love tomatillos so I had to try this. WOW. I plan on trying this with pork tenderloins next. Thanks so much for sharing this great recipe!!! I would give it more than 5 stars if I could.

This was so delicious!!! I loved the spice rub mixture and it was a great combination with the creamy avocado sauce. I was a little indulgent and cooked up 2 very thick steak fillet's for my hubby and me which we ate every bite of. I made the spice rub amounts exactly the same even though just for 2 as the steaks were so large. We really loved this one and I loved how easy it was to prepare. A truly fantastic steak recipe Sharon. A combination I never would have thought of trying, but it works so well and is totally delicious. It has definitely gone straight into favourites for us.

I'm trying this recipe because Kim said it was sooo delicious AND her photo made me crave it since she posted it! Tonight was the night and boy am I glad I made this! Delicioso! One of my favorite steak recipe now! Thank you Sharon for another excellent recipe. Made while touring C/S America with my Babes on ZWT4.

Outstanding! I loved everything about this recipe. The rub for the steaks was both sweet and tangy while the avocado sauce was cool and creamy. It was my first time using tomatillos so that was a plus too. The grilled jalapeno was too hot for DH but I enjoyed little bites of mine, lol. This was actually quite easy to prepare and it was definately enjoyed. Made for the Babes of ZWT4.

I thought this was such a great flavor combination! I used some beef flap meat that I had on hand instead of the ribeyes (it comes in long strips, so I cut it into chunks not unlike sirloin tips). I don't have an outdoor grill as of yet, so I cooked this on my Foreman grill instead. I also haven't been able to find fresh tomatillos in quite some time, so I used the better part of a drained 28oz can of tomatillos, and used some of the liquid in place of the water. I heated them up so the cream cheese would melt when added, but didn't bother to boil them. Just because the guys prefer spicy over not, I added two fresh hot chiles to the blender mixture. I left the avocado sauce on the side as a dip for the meat, and I sliced up a couple of pieces of jalapeno en escabeche to sprinkle over the cooked meat in place of the grilled jalapenos. I actually had quite a bit of sauce left over, so I think I will use it as a dip for tortilla chips. Thanks for posting! Made for ZWT4

I cook with tomatillos so this was a recipe I had to try! Delicious! I put 1 tblsp. vinegar into the water when I cooked the tomatillos. Then put all in the blender and blend before I put the cream cheese, avocado,green onions & salt.I also added a 3 oz can of mild green chiles to the blender.I did not serve with jalapenos. Personal taste. It is great if you add the rub on both sides and let set in the refrigerator over night, turning once and patting the rub on the other side. Also poke holes in the steak with a fork so the rub will penatrate into the meat. Will make again and again. Thanks for posting.
