New Christmas dinner ideas are hard to come up with, which is why so many of us revert to the traditional turkey and gravy, but if you are hosting an adult-only dinner party, then you might want to consider spicing things up a bit this year with this cannabis-infused Christmas steak recipe from Mexico. This edibles recipe might look a bit complicated at first, but our easy step by step guide makes learning how to make edibles a breeze while focusing on good quality infused goods that you won’t find for sale at any recreational dispensary.

Cooking time: 30 minutes

Calories: 274

Servings: 4


  • 9 garlic cloves
  • 2 plum tomatoes (cored)
  • 2 jalapeno peppers (cored, seeded, and stemmed)
  • ½ cooking onion
  • ½ cup fresh parsley
  • ½ cup cilantro
  • ½ cup ice
  • ¼ cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of red wine vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons of olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons of cannabutter
  • 2 tablespoons of oregano leaves
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 teaspoons of red wine
  • Salt and pepper to taste


  • Saucepan
  • Cast iron skillet
  • Spatula
  • Blender
  • Tupperware containers


  1. Add the tomatoes, onion, and 1 jalapeno pepper to a saucepan along with 6 cups of water.

  2. Bring the mixture to a simmer and cook the veggies until they are soft.

  3. Drain the onion mixture then toss the ingredients into a blender along with the vinegar and salt and pepper to taste. Blend it all together and store this sauce in a container in the refrigerator for later.

  4. Wash the blender then add the vinegar, oregano, 1 jalapeno, 2 minced cloves of garlic, parsley, cilantro, ice, and a pinch of salt, then dice the ingredients on high for 30 seconds or until smooth.

  5. Pour this sauce into another container and store it in the refrigerator for later.

  • Preheat your oven’s broiler with a large cast-iron skillet inside.

  • Spice the steaks with salt and pepper, and once the skillet is hot, toss them into the broiler with the canola oil.

  • Cook the steaks until they have a crispy golden edge and be sure to keep flipping them to check for doneness.

  • Evenly portion the cannabutter on top of the steaks, then toss them back into the oven until it melts.

  • Transfer the steaks to plates and pour the melted cannabutter sauce over each one.

  • Now retrieve those sauces from earlier and spread a nice thick layer of each on top of each of the steaks before serving.

  • THC edibles dosing recommendations

    One of these cannabis-infused steaks should be more than enough per person, and it is highly recommended that you limit yourself and guests to one serving every 12 hours at most to avoid over-consuming, which can result in an awful uncomfortable situation that can last for up to 12 hours.

    Can I make this into CBD edibles?

    Cannabutter is an incredibly versatile ingredient that can be made infused with either THC or CBD, so as long as you have cannabutter that infused with a cannabis strain that is high in CBD, yes, you can make this dish into CBD edibles instead. Just remember that they won’t induce the same psychoactive effects that you would expect from THC.
