Grilled Top Round Steak with Green Chile Cream Sauce

Succulent steak with a zesty sauce.


  1. Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine vegetable oil, oregano, garlic powder, onion powder, cumin, paprika, chili powder, salt, pepper and steak. Marinate for 10 minutes.   
  3. Place steaks on grill and cook for 1½ minutes, rotate 90 degrees and cook for 1 ½ minutes. Repeat for other side and continue cooking until internal temperature is 135°. Remove steaks and lightly tent with aluminum foil for 10 minutes, and slice on an angle against grain.   
  4. In a small saucepan, combine green chiles, red onion, cilantro, lime zest, lime juice and Sauvignon Blanc. Bring to a boil and reduce to a simmer until 1 tablespoon of liquid remains. Add cream and return to a boil. Reduce to a simmer until liquid is reduced by half. Remove pan from heat and whisk in butter. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper, if desired.
