Southwest Cowboy Steak With Skillet Corn Sauce And Tortillas

  • Yield: 4 main-course servings



  • Rub the meat all over with the oil. Sprinkle it with the Southwest Seasoning and pack the cilantro leaves around the steak. Allow to marinate for 30 minutes.
  • Prepare the Skillet Corn Sauce, and keep warm.
  • Prepare the Homemade Tortillas through Step 1. Preheat the broiler.
  • Place the steak on a rack in a roasting pan and sprinkle the top side evenly with the salt. For medium-rare meat, set the pan on the lowest rack in the broiler (about 7 inches from heat) and broil for 5 to 7 minutes. Turn the meat over and broil for 5 minutes. Move to the middle rack (about 5 inches from heat) and broil for 5 minutes more. Remove from the broiler and slice diagonally against the grain in thin slices.
  • Ten minutes before the steak is done, finish the Homemade Tortillas.
  • To serve, spoon 1/3 cup of the Skillet Corn Sauce on each of 4 dinner plates. Arrange 4 slices of steak and 3 Homemade Tortillas on top of the sauce.
