Mexican Steak Recipe

Serves 4
2-12oz Strip Steaks (or any good grilling steak)
1 tsp Ancho Chili Powder (Found in Spice section of Walmart or any grocery store)
1 tsp Cumin
1 tsp Paprika
1 tsp Salt
1/4 Cup Molasses
1/8 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
1/2 of a Chipotle Pepper in Adobo, minced (Found in Mexican section of Walmart or any grocery)
1 Tbls Dijon Mustard
Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Canola Oil


Mix together spices and rub liberally on both sides of the steaks, set aside at room temperature

Then mix together Molasses, Balsamic, Chipotle Pepper, and Dijon in a small sauce pan, whisk together over low heat.

Preheat grill to high heat, lightly drizzle steak with extra virgin olive oil and place steaks on grill for 3-4 minutes, flip and brush with molasses glaze.

Continue to flip and glaze both sides and cook until desired doneness. About 8 minutes total will be medium with thick steaks like these.

4 Ears of Corn
1/4 Cup Mayonnaise
Half of Chipotle Pepper, minced
1/2 Cup Queso Fresco Cheese

Place all ingredients in a skillet over medium heat, just to heat through, and enjoy!
