  • Using a cast-iron pan or grill, remove the husk from the corn. Cook the corn over medium-high heat for about one to two minutes per side until lightly charred on all sides. Once it is cooked, remove it and let it cool before slicing the kernels off the cob.
  • Pat the steak very dry with paper towel. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Use the same skillet and cook the steak for 10 to 12 minutes, flipping and turning every two to three minutes, until a dark crust has formed on both sides and the steak is cooked to your liking. Remove and let rest for about 10 minutes.
