What You'll Need

Cooking Directions



Let your flat iron rest for 3-5 minutes after it has finished cooking. This lets the juices settle back into the meat, keeping your steak juicy!


Cook Rice

Bring 1 1/4 cups (2 1/2 cups for 4 servings) of salted water to a boil. Add basmati rice and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp for 4 servings) butter, reduce heat to a gentle simmer, cover and cook for 12-15 minutes or until grains are tender. Turn off heat and vent lid slightly.


Prepare Steak

Pat steak dry on a paper towel and place on a plate. Season well with salt and pepper. Massage sweet rub into steak. 


Prepare Ingredients

Zest and juice lime and chop cilantro. If your corn is still frozen, thaw under warm water. Drain well and set all ingredients aside.


Cook Steak

At the 15 minute mark, heat 1 tbsp (2 tbsp for 4 servings) oil in a large skillet over medium high. When hot, sear steaks for 2-3 minutes each side. When juices begin to show on top of steak, remove from pan and let rest.


Saute Corn

Wipe out the same skillet and add 1 tbsp (2 tbsp for 4 servings) oil. Char corn and add red onion and garlic. Cook for 3-5 minutes until corn has some colour to it. Season to your liking with salt and pepper. Add cilantro and lime. 



Divide rice and corn saute onto two plates. Cut the flat iron on a sharp bias against the grain of the steak to make tender slices. Place on top of rice. Enjoy!
