Friday night tacos with corn & pineapple salsa

thumbnail for this post

All the best food is interactive, and some rare beef tacos with a sweet and spicy salsa are just the ticket on a Friday night after a long week.

You will need

  • Thin beef steak
  • A pair of sweetcorn on the cob
  • A good sized chunk of pineapple, or a few rings from a tin
  • A chilli
  • A handful of corriandor fine chopped
  • Taco trimmings (sliced lettice, grated cheese, sour cream, an inappropriate number of hot sauces)
  • Taco shells or (in my case some mini wraps)


  • Pop the grill on as hot as possible
  • Put the corn, pineapple and chilli under the grill under blackened
  • Keep turning until everything is a bit charred on sides. Remove stuff as it’s ready (the chilli browns quickly)
  • Fry the steak under as well done as you want it, wrap in clingfilm and set aside
  • Slice the corn off the cob, chop the pineapple roughly and fine slice the chilli
  • Mix corn, pineapple, chilli and corriandor
  • Slice the steak finely
  • Heat the tacos, prepare all rest of the trimmings
  • Assumble everything ready for eating.


The rare meat is melt in the mount. The salsa is a great mix of sweet, hot, charred and chunky. Piling food together and eating with your hands is the way to get close.
