The perfect grilled summer meal to share and made to take the heat of Pig Heaven.
Hot outside. Hot on the grill. Why not keep it going and kick up the heat by adding our Pig Heaven Habanero Hot Sauce on the side. The seared steak and caramelized onions can stand up to the heat, and the cheesy grilled corn will help keep the heat in check.
Summer Steak with Caramelized Onion and Grilled Corn
2 NY Strip Steaks (1 1/2" thick)
1 Medium Spanish Onion
2 Ears of bi-color Corn
2 Cloves Garlic
1/4 cup chopped Cilantro
Cotija (or similar) crumbly cheese
Coarse Sea Salt
Freshly cracked black pepper
Aluminum Foil (to wrap corn)
Street Corn Seasoning
(Optional) Brown Sugar
Preheat your BBQ Grill. You want the grill to be as hot as it can be.
Remove steaks from the fridge and season liberally with salt and pepper. Leave on counter. TIP - Don't let the steak to come to room temperature. The colder temperature of the meat will allow it to sear hard on the outside and cook slowly in the middle.
Preheat 1 tbsp Olive Oil in non-stick pan. Add 2 whole, peeled cloves of garlic while it warms up.
Slice Onions in half and then slice - creating half rings. Add them to the olive oil and reduce heat to med. Stir onions frequently until they reach desired color or the steak is done - I like them more burnt which adds another layer of flavor and texture.
While onions cook, husk and wash the corn. Lay each ear on a baking sheet and season evenly with Paprika, Cumin, Salt, and Pepper. Add a sprinkle of brown sugar if you like.
Wrap seasoned Corn in aluminum foil. Place corn on the grill, turning 1/4 turn every 3-4 minutes.
Place NY Strip steaks on rocket hot grill. Cook for 5-6 minutes per side for medium, or if you're awesome use a meat thermometer to get it exactly how you want.
After you flip the steak, unwrap the corn and put back on the grill. It will char a little and that's delicious.
When the steak has achieved your desired temperature, remove it from the grill and let it rest 5-6 minutes. Slice Steak 1/2" thick against the grain.
Place steak slices on a large rimmed platter and top with caramelized onions. Place Corn around steak and sprinkle cheese and chopped cilantro on top.
Pour Pig Heaven habanero hot sauce all over your steak and enjoy!
