Makes 4 servings

1-pound Top Sirloin Steak
1 packet taco seasoning (1.25 ounce)
1 head romaine lettuce
2 Roma tomatoes, diced
2 ears sweet corn
1 avocado, sliced
1/2 red onion, diced
1 cup black beans

Jalapeno Ranch Dressing:

1 clove garlic
1/4 cup flat leaf parsley
1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
2 tablespoons fresh chives
1/4 cup pickled jalapenos
1/2 cup buttermilk


Total Recipe Time: Under 30 Minutes

1. To make dressing, add garlic to a blender and chop. Add the rest of the dressing ingredients and blend until smooth, scraping down the sides intermittently to make sure it is well combined.

2. Rub the taco seasoning into both sides of the steak and remove husk from the corn. Place steak and corn in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill steak, covered, 11 to 15 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 13 to 16 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Roll corn as needed; corn will turn bright yellow and char. Tent the steak with aluminum foil and let rest for 10 minutes.

3. Slice the steak into thin slices and cut the corn from the cob. Combine with the rest of the salad ingredients and top with salad dressing to taste. Enjoy! via Wisconsin Beef Council
