This recipe is a quick, delectable family night meal with Mexican flavors. My son likes it when I cook food on a stick but you can absolutely skip the skewering and just rub a steak with the spices.
I love charred little gems, as it gives this vegetable a completely new life. Sometimes I will char these and top with balsamic reduction and blue cheese as a snack.
Step 1 -
Mix all of the ingredients for the pickled onions together in a pot and bring to a boil. As soon as it boils, remove from the heat and pour liquid over the sliced onions and reserve. This can be made weeks ahead of time.
Step 2 -
Cut the steak into cubes and rub with olive oil and season generously with salt and Masa Mole. Thread the cubes onto skewers.
Step 3 -
Grill or broil the steak on high heat for about 3 minutes per side or until desired doneness.
Step 4 -
Heat a sauté pan to high heat and add the poblano peppers to the dry pan to char for about 2 min before adding the corn. The corn just needs to be heated through. Season to taste with salt and juice from 1 lime.
Step 5 -
Remove the corn and poblanos to a bowl to keep warm. Heat the pan to high heat and add the halved little gem to chat the flat side. Cover with a top to steam and soften the lettuce but only char the flat side. Remove from heat when cooked and season with salt and lime juice.
Step 6 -
Serve the beef skewers with tortillas, corn-poblano salsa, pickled onions and charred little gems on the side.
