"Bon Appetit" Steak Mole with Cilantro

I came across this recipe in April issue of "bon appetit" and decided to take the plunge and make my first mole. The only thing I can say now is, why did I wait so long!

The whole family loved the flavors of the meat and sauce. What's not to love when that flavor includes my three favorites, smoke, sweet and heat. There was a wonderful depth to the flavors, with each coming casually after the other. I used my cast-iron skillet for this and can't help but think it added a little something. It certainly gave the meat a perfect sear.

The sauce will become one of our regulars. There was plenty leftover after making this and I shared it with some coworkers at a an office lunch potluck over some grilled chicken breast seasoned with ancho chili powder, salt and pepper. Using chicken instead of steak would certainly make it a lighter dish as well. I might try using just a little less oil next time to bring the fat down a little, though I was pretty happy with the steak and sauce at 327 calories, 17 grams of fat and 3 of fiber, according to bon appetit. Since I didn't use all the sauce, I'm guessing the servings were actually a bit lower than this.

Let's eat!

About Me
I love food! But I let that love get the best of me and my weight ballooned to more than 300 pounds. My wife and I joined Weight Watchers and, over a three-year period, I lost 100 pounds. However, I refused to give up on the foods I love, from Alfredo to cheeseburgers. I set out to find ways to eat almost anything I wanted, but to prepare it in a healthy way. Now, I'm sharing my love of food and cooking with others interested in living a healthy lifestyle.
