I enjoy the blend of green chile and cheese. In this recipe it takes your steak south of the border for an authentic Mexican Steak. No visa or passport required!

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Heat olive oil in pan.
  2. Sautee onion, garlic and tomato for 3 minutes or until tender.
  3. Set mixture aside.
  4. Preheat oven to broil.
  5. Cut green chile into long strips and set aside.
  6. Sprinkle seasoning salt on both sides of steak.
  7. Broil steaks (I broil the thin cuts 3-4 minutes) on one side.
  8. Remove from oven and place mixture of tomato, onion and garlic evenly on unbroiled side of steaks.
  9. Top with 2-3 strips of green chile.
  10. Next,place a slice of cheese on top of each steak (you will cover mixture and green chile strips with cheese slice.) Broil until steak is done and cheese is melted (about 3 minutes).
  11. Serve and enjoy!

WONDERFUL!! I used to order this at a TexMex restaurant several years ago that has since gone out of business. Thanks for bringing back an old favorite into my life! I served with spanish rice and beans. This will melt in your mouth!

Loved it! I used sirloin steak medalions for the meat, (which if you serve on the rarer side is very tender) A simple delicious recipe.

This is super! I actually doubled the recipe and used pepper jack cheese slices. And baked it for 45 minutes. It was very greasy, but yummy yummy! THanks for a great recipe!
