- Hey guys, Megan Mitchell here. And this week I'm heading to Breckenridge, Colorado. I'm excited to explore the town, check out the Rocky Mountains, and make a delicious meal. Two hours west of Denver, Breckenridge is a small town in the Rocky Mountains. Founded by gold miners in the mid 1800s, you can still see many historical buildings on Main Street. 9,600 feet above sea level, Breckenridge gets 300 inches of snow every year, and 300 days of sun. The town is known for its skiing, but the locals say that people come here for the winter, but stay for the summer. Today I'm making a grilled tomahawk chop with salsa verde. It's a bone-in ribeye, and you won't be able to find this in any local store. You'll have to go to a butcher and get this specific cut. First I'm gonna start with my rub, and in here I have salt, a little cayenne, smoked paprika, brown sugar, and onion powder. I'm just gonna massage some of this rub into the meat, and the reason I'm using a dry rub is when it goes on the grill it'll form a really nice crust. You wanna do it on both sides. Alright, this looks perfect. Now onto my grilled salsa verde. I'm using a poblano, one jalapeno, I need two tomatillos, and I'm using half of a white onion. And I'm gonna cut it in half with the roots still intact, peel off the skin, and that way when I put it on the grill nothing falls through the grates. I'm just gonna drizzle it with a little olive oil, salt and pepper, toss it, you wanna make sure everything's coated. And onto the grill. Ooh hot grill. The jalapeno. And what I'm looking for is the really nice char on the poblano and the jalapeno which will make it easier to peel. On the tomatillos as well. I love grilling onions. I think it adds a really smoky flavor to the sauce. You wanna cover this and let it cook a couple minutes per side just so it gets a nice charred mark on the bottom, and I'll flip it, char it a little more. The jalapeno you wanna flip it a couple times since it's rounded. You wanna make sure every side gets nicely charred. So I'm gonna put my poblano, my jalapeno, and my tomatillos in a bowl, and I'm doing this, I'm gonna wrap them with plastic wrap because I wanna steam them. It'll be easier to remove the skins. So while this steams I'm gonna chop up my onion and my cilantro. You wanna take off the root. Remember I left that intact so the onions stayed whole. I'm just gonna roughly chop these. These are nice and charred, they're really soft. There's something about grilled onions, kind of makes them a little sweeter. Now onto the cilantro. I think it adds a nice vibrant, fresh taste to this grilled salsa. Remember it doesn't need to be super fine because I'm gonna go back in and chip this all together. Gonna start with my tomatillos. Just give 'em another rough chop. Now I'm gonna move on to my jalapeno, and you wanna remove the stem. And then depending on how spicy you like it, you can remove all the seeds, you can remove some of the seeds. I like a little kick in my sauce, so I'm gonna leave the seeds in. The poblano will add the nice smoky flavor. I'm gonna remove the skin, and it's coming off very easily. That's why we steamed it. And then I'm just gonna cut around the stem and scrape out those seeds. And then I'm just gonna give it another rough chop. So I have all of my piles of vegetables. Now I'm gonna scrape them together, and this is how I'm making my sauce without a food processor. Just gonna chop and pull together, and chop, pull together. To finish seasoning my salsa verde, I'm gonna add two cloves of minced garlic, the juice of half of a lime, little salt, a little pepper. Gonna give this a taste. Little spicy, but I can taste the lime juice, I can taste the smoky poblano, think it's perfect. Now onto our potatoes. I have some baby potatoes, and I'm gonna add a little olive oil, salt and pepper. Just toss them together. And then I have a grill basket that's been preheating on my grill. Just gonna pour 'em in. These should cook about 10 minutes. Just go back, shake them every once in a while. You want them to get charred and browned on every side. So while my potatoes grill, I'm gonna make the dressing or sauce for it, which is really just rosemary and Dijon mustard. I'm gonna remove the leaves from the rosemary stems. Just give it a nice chop. And then a tablespoon of Dijon mustard. So when I add the hot potatoes into the bowl, the Dijon mustard will almost melt into them. I love this side dish because not too many ingredients, doesn't take too long. Alright I'm gonna pour this into my beautiful serving dish. And just to finish it off with some flaky sea salt. Set my potatoes aside and move on to the main event, which is my tomahawk chop which has been absorbing that great spice mixture I put on it. Gonna put it directly on the preheated grill. I want my chop to cook about 10 minutes per side. You wanna get a really nice crust on it, flip it, get a really nice crust on the other side. Can smell that spice rub already coming off of it. It's gonna be nice and juicy and tender in the middle. My tomahawk chop looks ready. And luckily I have this built-in handle so I don't need tongs. It's so perfectly cooked. It's nice and crusted, you can see the grill marks. While it rests, I'm gonna make my dessert. I'm gonna show you my take on s'mores, which is one of my favorite desserts. I'm gonna start with some graham crackers that I put a little bit of melted butter in. I'm gonna add brownies. I made these earlier and I cut them into cubes. I'm gonna use four mini cubes and push them down, make another layer. Perfect, and then some chocolate sauce, chocolate ganache, whatever your favorite is, put a little on top of the brownies. And next my marshmallow cream in the top, some mini marshmallows, just an homage to my childhood. I'm gonna use this nifty gadget. I'm gonna torch my marshmallows. And voila, you have a s'mores trifle. My dessert is done, so I'm gonna start plating. Take my salsa verde on this beautiful piece of slate. It's gonna pair perfectly with my tomahawk chop, sort of nestle it on top of that salsa verde. And then my potatoes will fit in this little nook like so. This is really good. This is one of my favorite dishes.
