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


  • 1 flank steak, (about 750 g)

  • 1 cob of corn

  • 2 tbsp olive oil

  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 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.
