Dry Rubbed Steak with Charred Corn and Tomato Salsa

This is such a good recipe and it is a great way to add freshness to a grilled steak. This recipe was created for our interview with Kate and Josh, the duo that makes Hasting and Co. Beef and corn are two things that drive the culture in their region of the United States. So we ran with that and added a little south of the border flare for Kate. This recipe is easy and we loved to be able to do this for Hasting and Co. Want to learn more about this dynamic duo? Click here to check out their interview and music.
