  1. The Meat: Season Flat iron Steak with Salt and Pepper. Grill for 8 minutes per side or until medium rare. Set aside to rest. Cut into 1” cubes The Peppers: Roast poblano peppers under broiler turning ¼ turn every 3 minutes until skin is charred and bubbly. Place peppers into sealed plastic bag to cool. Peel peppers and remove seeds. Don’t be too concerned about creating a pouch; the pepper will eventually loosely surround the filling Cilantro: Dice cilantro and put aside The Rice: In a 4-quart pan, sauté rice with butter for 2-3 minutes. Add Ro-Tel tomatoes and 2 ½ cups of water. Bring to a boil and let simmer for 20 minutes. Once rice is cooked, add half of the cilantro and stir with a fork to incorporate. The Sauce: In a saucepan, add sour cream, the zest of 1 lime and the juice of ½ lime, cumin and chili powder. Stirring continuously, bring sauce to a boil for 30 seconds or until bubbly, and remove from heat. The Assembly: In a large mixing bowl, combine Queso Fresco, ½-cup cilantro and the steak. Mix well. Form four equal size balls. Now insert the balls into the peppers. This will require some forming of the ball, which will eventually take on a football shape. Divide rice equally among 4 individual serving boats. Place the stuffed peppers on top of the rice. Cover the stuffed peppers and rice with four equal parts of the sour cream mixture. Bake for 30 minutes in a 400°F Oven Sprinkle lightly with chili powder as a garnish and serve.
