Happy July 4th to everyone!
If you are not cooking hot dogs and burgers there is a good chance you are grilling steaks. I hope Larry and Edie are not keeping a close inventory of their meat freezer. Use any cut of steak you like, or is on sale. This recipe is all about the relish. With the corn, tomatoes and peppers right from the garden this is a no brainer. This is a recipe from one of my favorite cook books, Bitchin' & Grillin'. Everyone loves this relish so you better double it.
Grilled T-Bones with Grilled Corn Relish
4 T-Bones, at least 1-inch thick
6 cloves garlic crushedd
1 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper
1/2 teaspoon salt
3 tablespoons lime juice
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon chili powder
2 ears corn
2 tomatoes, finely chopped
1 sweet pepper, finely chopped
1/4 cup snipped fresh cilantro
3 tablespoons red onion, finely chopped
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon cayenne pepper
Combine the garlic, pepper and salt. Sprinkle over both sides of the steaks and rub in with your fingers. Place on the grill on medium heat. Turn once. Allow 10-12 minutes for medium rare.
In a small bowl, combine the lime juice, olive oil and chili powder. Remove husks and silks from the corn. Brush with the lime juice mixture and place on the grill. Grill for 10 to 20 minutes, turning several times. Cool. Cut the kernels from the cob. Combine the corn, tomatoes, sweet pepper, cilantro, onion, salt and pepper. Sprinkle lime juice over it.
