2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Make the salsa cruda

  • Cut away the core from the tomato; coarsely chop the tomato.
  • Peel and finely chop enough onion to measure 1 cup [2 cups].
  • Finely chop, press, or grate enough garlic to measure 1 teaspoon [2 tsp]. 
  • Coarsely chop the cilantro.
  • Zest and juice the lime, keeping the zest and juice separate. [Zest and juice 1 lime; save the remaining lime for another use.] Set aside the zest for the corn.
  • If using the jalapeño, remove the stem, ribs, and seeds; finely chop the jalapeño. Wash your hands after handling.

In a medium bowl, stir together the tomato, onion, garlic, cilantro, 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime juice, and as much jalapeño as you like. Season generously to taste with salt and pepper. Let stand, stirring occasionally, while you prepare the rest of the meal. 


Prep and cook the corn

  • Shuck the corn. Coat the corn all over with 2 to 3 teaspoons butter or oil (from your pantry).
  • In a small bowl, stir together the chipotle mayo and 1 tablespoon [2 TBL] lime zest.

Heat a dry large frying pan over medium-high heat. Place the corn in the pan and cook, turning occasionally, until the corn is tender and starts to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Transfer to a plate. Slather the corn all over with the chipotle mayo, sprinkle with the queso fresco, and season with salt and pepper. Cover and keep warm. Wipe out the pan. While the corn is cooking, prepare the steaks. 


Prep and cook the steaks

  • Pat the steaks dry with a paper towel; if using New York strips, rib-eyes, or filet mignons, season generously with salt and pepper.

In the same pan used for the corn, warm 1 to 2 tablespoons oil over medium-high heat until hot but not smoking. Add the steaks. 


For garlic-marinated sirloin:

Cook, turning frequently, until well browned, 4 to 6 minutes for medium-rare.


For New York strips and rib-eyes: 

Cook, turning once, until well browned, 2 to 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. 


For filet mignons:

Cook, turning frequently, until well browned, 8 to 12 minutes for medium-rare.


Transfer the cooked steaks to a plate to rest for 5 minutes.


Transfer the corn and steaks to individual plates. Using a slotted spoon, remove the salsa cruda from the bowl, top the steaks with the salsa, and serve.
