Skirt Steak with Creamed Corn and Poblanos

Chef Way At Xochitl, this grilled steak is served with a side of creamy corn and poblanos, as well as roasted butternut squash and spiced pinto beans.

Easy Way The corn, made rich and tangy with sour cream, is a delightful accompaniment to the grilled skirt steak all on its own. Drop the butternut squash and the spiced pinto beans, which are substantial enough to serve as a main course.

  • 2 poblano chiles
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 medium onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 1/2 cups fresh or thawed frozen corn kernels
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/2 pounds skirt steak, cut into 6-inch pieces


  1. Roast the poblanos directly over a gas flame or under a broiler, turning, until charred all over. Transfer to a bowl, cover with plastic wrap and let stand for 10 minutes. Peel, core and seed the chiles, then cut them into thin strips.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat 2 tablespoons of the olive oil until shimmering. Add the onion and cook over moderate heat, stirring, until softened, about 5 minutes. Add the corn and poblano strips and cook until the corn is tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in the sour cream and season with salt and pepper. Keep the corn warm over very low heat.
  3. Light a grill or preheat a grill pan. Rub the steaks with the remaining 2 tablespoons of oil; season with salt and pepper. Grill over high heat, turning once, until lightly charred, about 6 minutes. Let the steaks rest for 5 minutes, then thinly slice across the grain. Serve with the corn and poblanos.
