  • “Great steak! Loved both the seasoning on the outside of the meat and the corn salsa. In fact, I think the corn salsa would make a nice vegetable side dish to a lot of meals. I overdid the steak slightly because I didn’t look at the weight of the meat properly compared with what the recipe calls for (mine was smaller) but otherwise it was perfect.”
