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.

    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.

  • Step 2 - Make the Fritter Mixture

    Make the Fritter Mixture

    Stir together corn muffin mix, corn, cheese, liquid egg, minced jalapeño (to taste), ¼ tsp. salt, and a pinch of pepper in a mixing bowl until batter is very thick, like a biscuit dough.

  • Step 3 - Fry the Fritters

    Fry the Fritters

    Place a medium non-stick pan with 1 Tbsp. olive oil over medium heat. Working in batches, scoop ¼ cup fritter mixture into pan to make three fritters, flatten scoops to ½" 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.

  • Step 4 - Cook the Steaks

  • Step 5 - Season the Steaks
