  • Total time 45 minutes
  • Portion size 4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 cup red jasmine rice
Green Onion Vinaigrette:
  • 2 cups baby spinach
  • 1/3 cup canola oil
  • 1/4 cup cider vinegar
  • 2 small cloves garlic , minced
  • 1 green onion , chopped
  • 2 teaspoons liquid honey
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
Bowls:
  • 450 g top sirloin grilling steak (3/4-inch thick)
  • 2 teaspoons canola oil
  • 3/4 teaspoons salt
  • 3/4 teaspoons chipotle chili powder
  • 2 corncobs , husked
  • 2 jalapeño peppers , sliced
  • 6 cups baby spinach
  • 1 avocado , diced
  • 1/3 cup pepitas , toasted
  • 2 green onions , thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • lime wedges and/or sour cream (optional)

Method

Cook rice according to package directions; fluff with fork.

Green Onion Vinaigrette: Meanwhile, in 2-cup liquid measure or small bowl, combine spinach, oil, vinegar, garlic, green onion, honey and salt; using immersion blender, purée until smooth. Set aside.

Bowls: Rub steak with oil; sprinkle with salt and chili powder. In cast-iron skillet, cook steak over medium heat, flipping once, until medium-rare, 6 to 8 minutes. Transfer to cutting board; tent with foil. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing across the grain.

Wipe pan clean. Cut kernels from corncobs; cook corn and jalapeño peppers in even layer over medium-high heat, without stirring, 1 to 2 minutes. Stir; continue to cook until charred, 1 to 2 minutes.

Divide rice, steak, corn mixture, spinach, avocado, pepitas and green onions among 4 bowls; drizzle each with 1/4 cup of the Green Onion Vinaigrette. Sprinkle with feta; serve with lime wedges and sour cream (if using).

Test Kitchen Tip:  Charring the jalapeños mellows the heat and adds smokiness.
