    Broil 8 to 10 minutes, turning steak and stirring vegetables once, until instant-read thermometre inserted in thickest part of steak reads 135°F (for medium). Transfer steak to cutting board; cover with foil, and let steak rest 5 minutes.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    If your oven’s broiler only covers the centre of your oven, start steak in the centre of the pan, then thoroughly stir vegetables and position them in centre while steak rests to ensure all elements get plenty of time directly under the flames.
  • Tip 2
    If desired, cut corn from cobs for serving.
