Chipotle steak & charred corn

Chipotle paste is a savvy way to bump up the flavour of steak. Bang-in-season sweet and smoky corn is the perfect partner.

  • 1 tbsp Cooks' Ingredients Chipotle Paste
  • 3 tsp Vegetable oil
  • 2 x 230g packs Essential British Beef Rump Steak
  • 2 Essential Sweetcorn cobs
  • 250g pouch Merchant Gourmet Mexican-style Rice & Quinoa
  • 1 Essential Red Pepper, finely chopped
  • 1 Essential Ready to Eat Avocado, chopped
  • ¼ x 25g pack coriander, leaves roughly chopped
  • tbsp Gran Luchito Tomatillo Salsa (or to taste - it's quite spicy)


  1. In a bowl, whisk the chipotle paste with 2 tsp oil, then add the steaks and coat. Season, cover and chill until you are ready to cook. Set a large nonstick pan over a medium-high heat. Brush the corn in the remaining 1 tsp oil; fry for 8-10 minutes, turning frequently, until golden and slightly charred. When cool enough to handle, cut off the kernels with a sharp knife.

  2. Heat the same pan over a medium-high heat; fry the steaks (2-3 minutes each side for medium; 3-4 minutes each side for well done), browning all the cut edges. Rest for 5 minutes, then slice into strips. Meanwhile, heat the grains according to pack instructions; add to a bowl with the corn, pepper, avocado and most of the coriander. Toss through the salsa to taste. Split the salad between 2 plates, topping with the steak and remaining coriander.

Cook’s tip

Make it vegetarian by replacing the steak with halloumi or manouri cheese.
