Ancho Chile Harissa
- Active Time 10m
- Total Time 1h 10m
Yields 1 cup
This North African inspired sauce made with anchos (dried poblano chiles) is spicy but not fiery - a bold complement to the big flavor of porterhouse. Look for ancho chiles in Hispanic or specialty food shops.
- 5 ancho chiles, seeded and stemmed
- 3 cloves garlic, chopped
- 1 teaspoon ground cumin
- 1 teaspoon ground coriander
- 1/3 cup olive oil
- 2 teaspoons soy sauce
- 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
- 2 tablespoons cold water
- Coarse salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
Soak the chiles in hot water until soft, about 1 hour. Drain the chiles and transfer to a food processor; add the remaining ingredients. Purée until very smooth. Taste and add more salt and pepper if necessary.
Store in a container with a thin layer of olive oil on top to prevent discoloration. The sauce will keep in the refrigerator for 2 weeks.
Serving Size = 2 tablespoons
