Roasted Tomatillo Salsa: Straight from My Garden!

Last night we grilled steak as an end of the week treat! We decided on a Flat Iron steak, which is one of my favorite cuts. It's so tender and has so much flavor. To top it all off, you can usually find it on good sale, too! : )

I couldn't decide how to season it, but then I remembered how many tomatillos and jalapenos we have from our garden and decided to make a Tomatillo Salsa!


Roasted Tomatillo Salsa

Recipe adapted from Michael Symon on The Chew

  • 8-10 tomatillos, husks removed and rinsed, sliced in half
  • 1 jalapeno, sliced in half and seeded
  • 1 small red onion, quartered
  • 3 cloves garlic, sliced in half
  • Olive oil
  • Salt & pepper
  • 1/2 cup Cilantro

Preheat oven to 450 degrees.

Place the tomatillos, jalapeno, onion and garlic in a bowl and coat with olive oil.

Spread on a baking sheet and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

Roast in the oven for 10 minutes, or until the veggies are starting to char.

Remove from the oven and let cool.

Put in food processor with cilantro and blend until smooth.

We seasoned the steaks with salt and pepper. Then added the salsa on top after they were done cooking.

If you don't like it spicy, you could just use half a jalapeno or leave it out all together! I have plenty more tomatillos and jalapenos, so I'm sure we will repeat this recipe a lot this summer!
