Quick-Seared Poblano Beef Tips Review

4 stars (on a 5 star scale)
p. 292-293

A decent meat-and-potatoes recipe. Satisfying though not exciting, this recipe would have rated only 3.5 star had not the nicely seared, medium rare chunks of rib-eye steak tasted so good.

The recipe is simple but takes a while. I needed to let the potatoes and onions simmer longer to brown them; I'm glad I did, as they ended with a more complex flavor. Incidentally, I used water for the liquid, not beer or wine or broth.

The cilantro garnish doesn't add anything; rather, I think it may even detract.
