Easy Steak & Corn Skillet Supper

Total Time

I often turn to this recipe when I need something that I can throw together very quickly. A fast, inexpensive family pleaser. Originally from Quick Cooking magazine. This is a mild dish, one that children will enjoy too. If you prefer a spicier dish, substitute a can of tomatoes with chilies, such as Rotel, for a bit of zing.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a large skillet, over medium-high heat, quickly brown the steak strips in oil along with the onion slivers (There should still be some pink remaining on the meat at this point).
  2. Sprinkle with thyme, then add wine or beef broth and allow the liquid to reduce until is has evaporated- this takes around 10 minutes.
  3. Do not be tempted to raise the heat too high- too high a temp will produce overcooked meat.
  4. Pour in the tomatoes along with their liquid, cover the pan, and let simmer 15 minutes more over low heat.
  5. Add the corn and heat just enough to warm the corn through.
  6. Serve ladled over cooked white rice.
  7. Note: Mexicorn is canned sweet corn kernals with little bits of mild chilies& sweet red peppers.
  8. If unavailable, use regular corn.

This was quick, easy and good. "Mexicorn" is something I have never seen here so I subbed 3 cups frozen corn, and one red and one green Jalapeno pepper, which went in with the onion. I also used fresh tomatoes. Because of that, I think, and also because I used homemade stock, I needed to add some salt. I should have used more Jalapenos, they were practically indetectable. I would have liked the dish to be spicier but it is a little hard for me to say if that is the recipe or the missing Mexicorn.

I gave this a mexican slant. I used rotel and one can of mexicorn. I left out the thyme and subbed an all purpose seasoning called Adobo (found in the mexican section). I cooked the sauce down longer than the recipe calls for and before serving, I added about a cup of shredded jalapeno jack cheese. Served it over rice as directed, and my hubby loved it! I will make burritos out of the leftovers

I didn't have mexicorn so I used rotel instead of the diced tomatoes and one can of corn. This made it a bit spicy but my husband liked it. I think I will make it again...it is very easy.
