Get your Mojo back with this daring grilled steak dish! Requires 1 hour marinade time.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. MOJO: whisk together all of the Mojo ingredients (except the steaks). Reserve 1/4 cup of marinade, covered, in the fridge. Marinate the steak in the remaining Mojo for 1 hour prior to grilling.
  2. MACARONI: Heat butter in a large skillet and sauté the onions, garlic, and habanero until just tender. Add the cooked macaroni, cheese, and poblano puree. Mix thoroughly and season to taste. Keep warm.
  3. GRILL: Grill the steak to desired doneness. Trim the roots off the green onions and grill them alongside the steak.
  4. SERVE: Place macaroni onto a plate. Place the steak atop the macaroni and spoon reserved Mojo over the steaks. Place grilled green onion stalks over top.

What a fantastic marinade for our T-Bones. I let the steaks marinate for about four hours before grilling. They turned out great! I loved the macaroni, too. However, I substituted jalepeno for the habanero. Can't wait to have T-Bones this good again! Thanks for sharing your recipe!

WOW! These steaks are amazing! I grilled them indoors on my grill pan and they were absolutely fantastic. I didn't have enough fresh oregano so I used dried and it worked very well. The woodsy oregano went very well with the tart lime and smoky cumin. For the macaroni I used a 4 oz. can of fire roasted diced green chiles in place of the pureed poblano. I was a little worried that the habanero would be too spicy for DH but he loved it. It has a nice deep heat but not so much that it is intolerable (although he did follow it up with a big bowl of ice cream for dessert!) I will definitely be making this again, it is a dish worthy of more than 5 stars. Thanks for posting 2Bleu!
