I was watching The Chew TV Show and Chef Micheal Symon said he serves a pickled chili salad over his steaks at his restaurant. I never thought of pickled chilies with a steak. I usually do something traditional like slow cooked onions or mushrooms. So I thought I’d try it since a had a bunch of Anaheim Chilies that I wanted to do something with. In Michael Symons recipe he uses Jalapeño peppers, Fresno Chilies and Shallots. I used Anaheim Chilies and one large Red Onion. I have to say the pickled chilies and onions are really great with steak. It seemed to lighten the steak up. These chilies would also be great on sandwiches. You might want to give this a try. Use whatever chilies you like!
Ingredients for 8 servings
1 cup white wine vinegar
1 cup rice wine vinegar
1 cup water
2 Tablespoons kosher salt
1/4 cup sugar
1 small onion pealed and sliced
1 head garlic slice off the very top so the cloves are exposed
1 Tablespoon black peppercorns
1 Tablespoon coriander seeds
2 bay leaves
8 oz chilies jalapeno and fresno (they were left whole in his recipe I sliced mine) (I used Anaheim Chilies)
8 oz shallots sliced thin (I used a red onion)
Leave your chilies in one sterile container and your shallots in another sterile container. The rest of the ingredients put in a medium sauce pan and bring to boil and then reduce to simmer and let it go till it reduces some. Strain and pour over your chilies and shallots.
