black truffle salt – enough to sprinkle on each side of the steak
1 spoonful each steak black truffle butter – I had some leftover from a previous meal but if you want to make your own it’s just a sprinkle of salt per tbs of butter mixed together
3 yellow chili peppers – sliced in half and seeded (or more if you are having more than 2 guests – these guys are pretty small)
1 shallot – chopped
2 cloves garlic – chopped
8 oz cream cheese – softened
pepper – to taste
Heat the oven to 350. In a bowl, mix the cream cheese, shallots, garlic and a bit of pepper until well combined. Fill each pepper half with the mixture. Place in a shallow baking dish. If they won’t lay upright and keep tipping over, shave just a bit off the bottom to make them sit up correct. Bake for 20 to 25 minutes.
For your steaks, dry them off with a paper towel and rub truffle salt onto both sides. Heat up a skillet until some droplets of water sizzle. In the dry skillet, cook the steaks for 4 minutes each side for rare to medium rare – longer if you want them more well done.
Plate and top your steaks with a dollop of truffle butter! Yum! I had a glass of Cupcake Red Velvet with this and it was a really nice contrast of flavors.
