Meat 'N Twos
In this ingenious 3-ingredient recipe, grilled fresh corn and poblano chile are
used in two ways: Half of the mixture gets pureed into a sauce that's served
under seared skirt steak and the rest becomes a chunky salsa that's spooned
on top. © Con Poulos

Corn and poblano chiles are a magical combination—the sweetness from the corn mitigates the bitterness and heat of the poblanos—and the blend is amazing on savory, meaty skirt steak. In this superfun recipe that uses only three ingredients, not counting oil, salt and pepper (c’mon, that’s not a cheat!) I’ve grilled corn and poblanos, then pureed half with olive oil to make a sort of creamy allioli, then chopped the rest to make a salsa.
If I’d been allowed to add one more ingredient (the article held me to a rigid three) I’d have added some lime to brighten the whole thing up. Still and all, I think it’s pretty durned delicious. SEE RECIPE »
