Have someone to impress? Good – invite them over for this dish. It’s layered with complex flavors but anyone can enjoy it. We start with a charred flat-iron steak and then you make your own chimichurri after roasting and mincing a poblano pepper and letting it marry with garlic, red wine vinegar, parsley, and cilantro. You’ll then make your own orange- and rosemary-infused caramel to serve over fresh green beans. You fancy, huh.

    Preheat broiler on high and prepare a baking sheet with foil. Place poblano pepper on baking sheet and drizzle with 1 tsp. of olive oil. Place under broiler on middle rack for 12-15 minutes, turning once or twice so that all sides are charred and blistered. Remove and pull together corners of foil so that poblano is enclosed. Allow to steam 10 minutes until cool enough to handle. Stem, core, skin, and mince poblano.
