A note about serious food allergies

Life on the ranch can be as hard as callused hands and cold ground. For the end-of-day chow, a rancher needs something hearty to fill up the gullet and satisfy the soul. Sirloin steak flavored with a flash of ranch seasoning fits that description to a T. That deliciousness matches the cheese-y jalapeño fritters, sweet spicy cakes that melt in your mouth. Whether you're a country soul or citified slicker, this dinner bell is ringing for you.

Cooking Guidelines

To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Shuck corn, rinse, and carefully remove kernels from cob. Stem jalapeños and cut a few rounds from stem end of one. Halve, seed, remove ribs, and mince remaining jalapeño. Retain seeds if you prefer more spice. Pat steaks dry.

  2. 2

    Make the Fritter Mixture

    Stir together corn muffin mix, corn, cheese, liquid egg, minced jalapeño (to taste), 1/4 tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl until batter is very thick, like a biscuit dough.

  3. 3

    Fry the Fritters

    Place a medium non-stick pan with 1 Tbsp. olive oil over medium heat. Working in batches, scoop 1/4 cup fritter mixture into pan to make three fritters, flatten scoops to 1/2" thickness, and cook until browned, 1-3 minutes per side. Transfer to prepared baking sheet and repeat with remaining fritter mixture, making six fritters total. Bake until warmed through, 6-8 minutes. Wipe pan clean and reserve. While fritters bake, cook steaks.

  4. 4

    Cook the Steaks

    Return pan used to fry fritters to medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and steaks to hot pan. Cook until well-browned and steaks reach a minimum internal temperature of 145 degrees, 4-5 minutes per side. Transfer steaks to a plate.

  5. 5

    Season the Steaks

    Mix ranch seasoning with 1 tsp. olive oil. Brush ranch-oil mixture on cooked steaks and rest 3 minutes.

  6. 6

    Finish the Dish

    Serve steaks on a plate alongside fritters. Garnish fritters with sour cream and jalapeño rounds (to taste).
