Tostadas with Beef Flat-Iron Steaks

Rub the corn cobs with a little oil, season then grill on a preheated grill plate until lightly golden. Cut down the side of the cobs to remove the kernels.

Remove the Beef Flat-Iron Steaks from the fridge and packaging. Season with pepper and 1 tsp olive oil.

Allow to bloom at room temperature for 10 minutes. Salt the meat just prior to cooking.

Place the tortillas on a flat, lined baking tray and top each one with cheese, leaving a 1cm border. Bake for 8 minutes or until the cheese is melted and golden.

Heat a pan on a medium-high heat. Cook the Beef Flat-Iron Steaks for 3–4 minutes on each side.

Transfer to a plate, cover lightly with foil and rest for 5 minutes before slicing thinly against the grain.

Green herb and mustard salsa:

Whisk the oil, vinegar and mustard in a bowl and season with salt and pepper. 

Place the herbs, capers and garlic on a chopping board and chop everything together to form a coarse chunky paste.

Add to the bowl and combine.

To serve:

Spread each tostada with sour cream, then top with corn, avocado, feta, sliced steak, green chillis and coriander. Drizzle with the salsa and serve immediately. Makes 8.
