Directions Edit

  1. Start a charcoal or gas grill; fire should be quite hot, and rack about 4 inches from the heat source.
  2. If using oven, turn it to its maximum temperature.
  3. Put chipotle in a bowl, and add boiling water to cover.
  4. Put olive oil in a medium saucepan over medium heat; a minute later, add bacon, and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp, about 10 minutes.
  5. Add onion, and cook, stirring occasionally, until it is softened, about 5 minutes.
  6. Lower heat, stem and seed chipotle and add it (or a piece of it, to taste), along with tomatoes; adjust heat so mixture simmers steadily but not violently (reserve chipotle soaking liquid).
  7. Season steaks with salt and pepper.
  8. Grill about 4 minutes on a side, or until they reach desired degree of doneness.
  9. If cooking steaks inside, heat a cast iron or other heavy skillet over high heat 3 to 4 minutes.
  10. Add steak, and, a minute later, transfer pan to oven; turn after about 4 minutes, and continue to cook to the desired degree of doneness.
  11. When tomatoes break up, taste sauce; add salt and pepper as needed and, if it is not hot enough, a bit of the chipotle-soaking liquid or reserved chipotle.
  12. When steaks are done, serve them with sauce.
