For a charcoal grill, grill mango on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals for 5 minutes, turning once. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-high. Place mango on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.) Chop the grilled mango. In a food processor, combine the chopped mango and 3/4 cup butter, softened. Cover and process with several on-off pulses until mango is finely chopped.

Trim fat from steaks. For rub, in a bowl, combine ancho chile pepper,cocoa powder, salt, and black pepper. Brush steaks with oil. Sprinkle pepper mixture evenly over steaks; rub in with your fingers.

For a charcoal grill, arrange medium-hot coals around a drip pan. Test for medium heat above pan. Place steaks on grill rack over drip pan. Cover grill for 30 to 35 minutes for medium-rare (145°F) or 35 to 40 minutes for medium (160°F). (For a gas gill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium. Adjust for indirect cooking. Grill as above.)

Cut steaks into serving-size pieces. Serve with Mango Butter. Makes
