Instructions for Steak
Cut steaks into small cubes. Coat them with the Roasted Garlic Peppercorn Char Crust® and drizzle with olive oil.
Thread steak on a skewer with one small tomato. Note: the skewers should have been soaked in water for at least a half hour.

Cook rotating every 2 minutes until cooked to desired doneness. About 8 to 10 minutes.
Remove from heat. Optional: serve with Chimichurri Sauce (see recipe below).
Instructions for Corn Elote
Preheat grill to medium-high heat.
Carefully cut each corn cob into quarters. You should end up with 8 corn ribs. Be very careful - use a sharp knife. Alternatively, you may keep the corn whole.
Sprinkle the corn with Southwest Chipotle Char Crust® and spritz with olive oil.
Place the corn cut side down on the grill. Cook turning regularly until each side is starting to char and caramelize, about 10-15 minutes.
Transfer to a platter.
Use store-bought chipotle mayo or make homemade chipotle mayo by mixing 2 tbsp of mayonnaise with 1 tsp of Southwest Chipotle Char Crust (add more Char Crust if you want a stronger flavor).
Drizzle or spread mayo on top of corn and sprinkle on the cheese. Add lime zest, juice and cilantro. Serve.
