The marinade in this recipe takes the steak to the next level. A post-workout favourite for our customers at Andina, this dish is lean and rich in protein, and with the creamy corn giving it a final, indulgent twist, it’s unforgettable.

1
First, make the marinade by mixing all the ingredients together in a large bowl. Add the steaks to the bowl, coat, cover and marinate in the fridge for at least 5 hours
2
Make the amarillo chilli paste by heating the oil in a small frying pan over a low–medium heat. Fry the onion for 7–8 minutes until soft, but not browned, then add the garlic and chilli and fry for 2–3 minutes more to soften
3
Season with salt to taste, then allow to cool completely. When cool, blitz to a smooth paste, then set aside until needed. (You can store in an airtight container in the fridge for up to a week)
4
To make the choclo corn cream, heat the olive oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Add the onion and sauté for about 10 minutes until softened, then add 1/2 tbsp of the chilli paste
5
Cook, stirring, for 2–3 minutes more, then add the sweetcorn, choclo (or additional sweetcorn) and cumin. Sauté for 1 minute, stirring, then add the milk and bring almost to the boil. Reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes until the liquid has reduced by a third
6
Add the white wine vinegar, then use a stick blender to blitz to a rough purée. Set aside and keep warm
7
Next, make the escabeche. Heat the olive oil in a saucepan over a medium heat. Add the red onion and red pepper and sauté for 5–6 minutes until they have started to take on a little colour and are beginning to soften
8
Add the garlic and chilli or chilli paste and sauté for 2–3 minutes until the garlic has started to soften but not taken on any colour
9
Add the pisco or vodka, red wine vinegar and syrup or sugar and season. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat to low and simmer for about 5 minutes until the liquid has reduced by at least half and is syrupy
10
Blot the steaks with kitchen paper and sprinkle each one with salt on both sides. Heat a griddle until it is too hot to hold your hand over, then sear for 1 minute on each side, then cook for a further 2–3 minutes for rare, 5 minutes for medium–rare and 6–7 minutes for medium, turning every 30 seconds or so
11
Remove from the heat and leave to rest for 5 minutes
12
Slice the steaks and serve on individual serving plates on a bed of the choclo corn cream, with the escabeche on the side or over the top of the steak. Decorate with a few micro herbs
