2 ears fresh sweet corn
2 Tbsp olive oil
2 Tbsp white wine vinegar
2 tsp snipped fresh sage
(1 lb) beef top sirloin steak (1″ thick)
1/4 tsp cracked black pepper
2 heirloom tomatoes, cored, cut in wedges
1/4 cup snipped fresh chives or chopped green onions
1-2 Tbsp low-fat blue cheese crumbles
1. Remove husks and silks from corn. Brush with 1 tsp of the olive oil. In a medium-size bowl, whisk together remaining olive oil, the white wine vinegar, and sage; set aside.
2. For a charcoal grill, place corn on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium-hot coals. Grill for 10 to 15 minutes or until lightly browned, turning frequently to prevent overbrowning. (For a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce heat to medium-high. Place corn on grill rack over heat. Cover and grill as above.) When cooled enough to handle, cut kernels off of the cobs.
3. Add corn, tomato wedges and chives or green onions to olive oil mixture; toss to coat.
4. Meanwhile, sprinkle the steaks with the black pepper. Grill the steaks on the rack of an uncovered charcoal grill directly over medium coals (or on the rack of a covered gas grill directly over medium heat) for 8 to 12 minutes for medium-rare doneness (145 degrees F) or 12 to 15 minutes for medium doneness (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling.
5. Slice steak and place on serving plates. Sprinkle with blue cheese and serve with tomato mixture.
NOTE:: If Heirloom tomatoes are not availabe any variety will work.
