Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Boil corn in water for 15 minutes. Let cool. Cut corn off cob and combine with avocados and lime juice. Add 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
  2. Refrigerate with plastic wrap pressed down against surface of salsa – blocking the air from the salsa. Cool for at least one hour before serving.
  3. Heat frying pan to high heat. Salt the steak with 1/2 teaspoon of salt per side. Brush with 1/2 teaspoon of vegetable oil. Sear steak till browned, about 1 minute per side. Remove to a plate till completely cooled.
  4. Heat 1 teaspoon of vegetable oil in a medium saucepan over med-high heat. Add onions and 1 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Saute until browned, stirring occasionally – about 15 minutes. Add beef stock and A-1 steak sauce. Reduce till moisture has gone – about 15 minutes. Remove to a bowl and cool completely.
  5. Dice cooled steak into 1/4” pieces. Combine with onion mixture and cheese in a mixing bowl.
  6. Preheat oven to 400.
  7. Lay out puff pastry on lightly floured surface. Cut each in half, making 4 rectangles. Place 3 heaping tablespoons of steak mixture on one half of each rectangle, leaving an edge around the filling. Fold over empty half onto filling, crimping the edges and rolling the crust over onto the top. Brush with beaten egg. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden brown. Sprinkle with 1/2 tablespoon of salt.
