Flank Steak with Fresh Salsa

Sweet corn salsa is the perfect fresh touch for juicy grilled steak.

Ingredients

  • 1 flank steak , (about 750 g)
  • 1 cob of corn
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/4 tsp salt

Salsa

  • 2 pints cherry tomatoes , halved
  • 1/2 small red onion , chopped
  • 1 small jalapeno , seeded and finely chopped (optional)
  • 2 garlic cloves , minced
  • 1/2 cup chopped cilantro
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp salt

Directions

  • Preheat barbecue to medium-high.
  • Brush steak and corn with oil, then sprinkle with ¼ tsp salt. Season with fresh pepper.
  • Barbecue corn, using tongs to turn every 1 to 2 min, until lightly charred all over. When cool enough to handle, slice corn kernels off the cob.
  • Barbecue steak, with lid closed, 3 to 5 min per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 5 to 10 min before slicing.
  • Stir corn with tomatoes, onion, jalapeno, garlic, cilantro, vinegar and 1/2 tsp salt in a medium bowl.
  • Slice steak thinly against the grain. Serve with salsa.

Swap Tip

Sauté 1 cup frozen corn with 1 tsp canola oil in a medium non-stick frying pan over medium until golden, about 5 min. Stir into salsa.
