How To Make Flank Steak over Corn-Kernel Polenta

Juicy flank steak is served over a thyme-flavored and creamy polenta that’s packed with tender corn, to yield a delectable dinner meal!

Preparation: 20 minutes
Cooking: 40 minutes
Total: 1 hour



  • cupswater
  • tspsalt
  • ¾tspdried thyme
  • 2cupscorn kernels,(cut from about 3 ears), fresh or frozen
  • 1cupcornmeal,coarse or medium
  • 2tbspbutter
  • 2tbspcooking oil
  • lbsflank steak
  • ¼tspfresh ground black pepper
  • 2garlic cloves
  • 1cupdry white wine
  • ½cupbrandy,or bourbon


  1. In a medium saucepan, bring the water, 1¾ teaspoons of the salt and ½ teaspoon of the thyme to a boil. Stir in the corn and cook for 5 minutes for fresh, 1 minute for frozen, until tender.

  2. Add the cornmeal in a slow stream, whisking. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring frequently, for about 20 minutes, until very thick.

  3. Remove from the heat. Stir in the butter.

  4. In a large frying pan, heat the oil over moderate heat. Sprinkle the steak with the remaining ½ teaspoon of salt and the pepper.

  5. Add the meat to the pan and cook for 5 minutes. Turn and cook to your taste, about 5 minutes longer for medium rare, depending on the thickness. Remove.

  6. Reduce the heat to moderately low. Add the garlic to the pan and cook, stirring, for 30 seconds. Add the remaining ¼ teaspoon of thyme, the wine and the brandy and stir to dislodge any brown bits that cling to the bottom of the pan.

  7. Boil for 3 to 4 minutes, until reduced to approximately ¼ cup.

  8. Slice the steak across the grain and on the diagonal.

  9. Serve the steak over a bed of corn polenta, with the sauce drizzled over all, and enjoy!
