Ingredients & Cooking

Ingredients:

  • 1 pound beef Top Sirloin Steak boneless, cut 3/4 inch thick
  • 2 packages (8-1/2 ounces each) cornbread mix
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1 cup shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 cup frozen corn, thawed
  • 1 tablespoon ancho chile powder
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons ground cumin
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1/2 medium red onion, cut into 1/2-inch thick slices
  • Olive oil
  • 1 medium mango, diced
  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
  • 1/4 cup low-fat dairy sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon freshly grated lime peel
  • 24 fresh cilantro leaves

Cooking:

  1. Preheat oven to 400°F. Line 15-1/2 x 10-1/2 x 1-inch rimmed baking sheet with aluminum foil; spray with nonstick cooking spray. Combine cornbread mix, milk, and eggs in large bowl just until blended (batter will still be lumpy). Stir in cheese and corn. Pour batter into prepared pan. Bake in 400°F oven 20 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool in pan 5 minutes. Run knife around edges of pan; invert cornbread onto cutting board. Cool completely. Cut into rows lengthwise, then rows crosswise to form 12 squares. Cut each square diagonally in half to form 2 triangles.

  2. Meanwhile, combine chile powder, cumin and garlic; press evenly onto beef steak. Brush onion slices with oil.

  3. Place onions on outer edge of grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 15 to 20 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, times remain the same) or until tender, turning occasionally. Place steak in center of grid; grill 7 to 11 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 8 to 13 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. Transfer steak to carving board.

  4. Chop onions when cool enough to handle. Combine onions, mango, chopped cilantro and lime juice in medium bowl; set aside. Combine sour cream and lime peel; set aside.

  5. Carve steak into thin slices. Divide steak evenly among cornbread triangles. Top each triangle with about 1 tablespoon mango salsa and 1/2 teaspoon sour cream mixture. Garnish with cilantro leaves. Serve immediately.
