GREEN CHILE STEAK

We love our steaks medium-rare, so we recommend cooking 8-10 minutes total (split between sides). If you love a rare steak, knock off a couple minutes per side. Preheating your grill pan before cooking creates a more even cooking surface and will prevent meat from sticking to the pan.

GRILLED PEACHES WITH RICOTTA

This homemade ricotta is a fun project that makes for an elevated dessert when paired with grilled fruit. Use a combination of peaches and nectarines, or whatever stone fruit is freshest from the market. If you want to use store-bought ricotta instead of making your own, that works too.
