    Total Time: 1 hour
    Servings: 4 people



    Arugula Pesto:

    For Serving:

    • 4 ears corn
    • 2 balls burrata cheese (torn into bite sized pieces (4 ounces))
    • Salt and pepper (to taste)


    • Whisk together the marinade ingredients and pour over the flank steak in a casserole dish or large ziploc bag. Let marinate 30 minutes, or up to overnight.
    • Meanwhile, preheat your grill to high heat.
    • While the grill is heating, make the pesto. Process arugula, basil, oil, parmesan, pine nuts, lemon zest, garlic and salt in a food processor or blender until finely chopped; season with pepper, to taste.
    • Add the corn and steak to the grill and cook the steak for 3-5 minutes per side for medium rare (132 degrees). Transfer to a cutting board and let rest 5 minutes. Cook the corn until charred in spots and tender (about 10 minutes).
    • Slice the steak against the grain and cut the corn kernels off the cobs.
    • Plate the steak with the burrata and grilled corn and top with arugula pesto. Enjoy!
