Servings 4


  • 3 lbs flank steak
  • 2 teaspoons salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons chipotle chili pepper powder

For the corn salsa:

  • 2 cups corn kernels, cooked and cooled (fresh or frozen)
  • 1 cup fresh tomatoes, diced
  • 1/3 cup red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeno, seeded and diced small
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1/4 cup cilantro, chopped
  • Juice of 1 lime
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • Make dry rub by mixing salt, pepper, cumin, garlic powder, onion powder and chipotle powder in a small bowl. Sprinkle on both sides of flank steak and rub into meat. Allow meat to sit at room temperature (for up to 30 minutes) while grill is heating up.
  • Heat grill or smoker to high heat. Place steak on grill and cook for 5-7 minutes. Flip and continue cooking until desired internal temperature is reached. (135-140 degrees for medium, 145-155 for medium well, 155 and up for well) Careful not to overcook past 155 to maintain tenderness. Allow steak to rest, lightly covered, with foil for 10-15 minutes before slicing.
  • Make the salsa by adding all ingredients to a medium-sized bowl and toss to combine. Serve on top of steak slices.


  1. When slicing steak, make sure to cut against the grain so that steak remains very tender.
