This was delicious, alas I was a few beers in by the time I took the photo so it’s blurry oops! Overall a simple recipe and something that everyone enjoyed.


  • 1 tablespoon ground cumin
  • 1 tablespoon dried oregano
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
  • 2 pounds skirt steak, trimmed and cut into 5- to 6-inch pieces
  • Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 cup canola oil
  • 2 ears of corn, kernels sliced off and cobs discarded
  • 1/2 medium red onion, diced
  • 1 jalapeño, seeded and diced
  • 2 medium peaches, diced
  • 2 tablespoons fresh juice from 2 limes
  • 1/2 cup fresh cilantro leaves and tender stems, roughly chopped


Stir togehter cumin, oregano, and cayenne pepper in a small bowl. Season steak with salt and pepper and rub with the spice mixture. Set aside.


In a 12-inch skillet, heat canola oil over medium-high heat until lightly smoking. Add steaks and cook, flipping every 1 minute, until an instant-read thermometer registers 115 to 120°F for medium-rare or 125 to 130°F for medium, about 5 minutes total. Transfer steaks to a large plate, tent with foil, and let rest.


Meanwhile, pour off all but 1 tablespoon of fat from the skillet and heat over medium heat until shimmering. Add corn, red onion, and jalapeño and season with salt. Cook until corn begins to char and onions and jalapeño soften, about 3 minutes. Scrape corn mixture into a large bowl and add peaches, lime juice, and cilantro and stir to combine. Season with salt and pepper. Slice steak across the grain and serve with corn salsa.
