Grilled Skirt Steak With Corn-Tomato Relish

Active Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes

Serves 4

  • 1 pound skirt steak or sirloin steak
  • 3/4 teaspoon kosher salt, divided
  • 3/4 teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • 1 ear corn, husked
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1/2 cup halved cherry tomatoes
  • 1/4 cup thinly sliced red onion
  • 2 tablespoons torn fresh basil
  • 1 1/2 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 1 serrano chile, seeded and minced

Preheat grill to medium-high.

Sprinkle steak with 1/2 teaspoon each of salt and pepper. Brush the steak and corn with 1 tablespoon oil.

Oil the grill rack. Grill the corn, turning occasionally, until lightly charred and tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Grill the steak, turning occasionally, to desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer the steak to a clean cutting board and let rest for 10 minutes.

Cut the kernels from the cob. Combine in a medium bowl with tomatoes, onion, basil, vinegar, chile, the remaining 2 tablespoons oil, and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

Slice the steak thinly against the grain. Serve with the relish.

Tasty Tip

To oil your hot grill rack, soak a paper towel with vegetable oil and hold it with tongs to rub it over the rack. Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.
