  • 6

    large glaric cloves, unpeeled

  • 4

    fresh serrano or 2 fresh jalapeno chiles, stemmed

  • ¼

    cup fresh lime juice

  • 2

    tbsp. vegetable or olive oil, plus more for the steaks

  • Salt

  • 6

    rib-eye steaks about 1 inch thick (they'll weight about 10 to 12 ounces each)


1. Marinate the steaks: In a small ungreased skillet, roast the unpeeled garlic and the chiles over medium heat, turning occasinally, until both are soft and blotchy black in places--5 to 10 minutes for the chiles, 10 to 15 minutes for the garlic. Cool, then peel the garlic. Place both garlic and chiles in a food processor along with the lime juice and oil. Run the machine until the mixture is as smoothly pureed as possible. Season highly with salt, usually about 1 1/2 tsp. Smear the mixture over both sides of the steaks, cover and refrigerate for 1 hour. 2. Grill the Steaks: Grill to your desired temperature.
