Steak Tacos with Grilled Corn Salsa

These are the best tacos ever! I got the recipe from Cook's Country. They used a flank steak, but we prefer New york steaks in this house! The grilled corn salsa is full of flavor, and the lime infused sour cream gives it a refeshing kick. Try them, and you'll never want any other taco again :)

serves 4
You will need:

2 ears corn, husk and silk removed
1/4 cup finely chopped red onion
1 jalapeño chile, stemmed, seeded, and minced
1/4 cup lime juice (2 limes)
1 tablespoon minced fresh cilantro
Salt and pepper
1 teaspoon ground cumin
1 (1 1/2- to 2-pound) New York steak
12 (6-inch) corn tortillas
1/2 cup sour cream

Prepare the corn salsa first so that all the goodies in it can mingle for a while...
Place corn in large bowl and microwave, covered, until nearly tender, 3 to 5 minutes.
Stir onion, jalapeño, 2 tablespoons lime juice, cilantro, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper together in bowl. Set aside.
Grill corn over hot fire, turning often, until lightly charred and tender, about 10 minutes.
Remove corn from grill and let cool about 10 minutes, then cut kernals from husk and add to the salsa.

Combine cumin, ¾ teaspoon salt, and ½ teaspoon pepper in bowl. Pat steak dry with paper towels and rub with cumin mixture.
Grill your steak to your liking...medium rare for me, well done for the we meet in the middle. Transfer your steak to a carving board and cover with foil. Let it sit for 5-10 min before cutting.

While your steak is resting, throw some corn tortillas on the grill, just to heat them up a bit..lightly char 'em

 Combine sour cream and remaining 2 tablespoons lime juice in bowl. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Cut your steak into thin slices. Prepare your tacos...steak, salsa, sour cream, pinch more of cilantro... there ya have it!
