  1. Preheat your grill to 400 degrees F.

  4. Move to indirect heat and continue cooking until the internal temperature reaches 145 degrees F.
  5. Allow to rest under foil for ten minutes.
  6. While resting, drizzle romaine wedges with olive oil and salt and place on grill for three to four minutes.
  7. Once done, sprinkle with lime juice and move to plates.
  8. Cut steaks against the grain into medallions and serve over romaine wedge, adding corn, black beans, Cotija cheese, avocado, and chimichurri dressing on top.

    1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F.
    2. Place steak into oiled pan and sear for ten minutes, flipping the steak over every two minutes.

    4. Once at temperature, remove steak from pan onto a board. Cover loosely with foil and rest for ten minutes. To serve, slice against the grain into medallions.
