Corn cream is one of the Chilean recipes that pass from generation to generation. Its softness and versatility transform it into the perfect partner for the classic Rib cap steak. We propose to enjoy this dish with an unusual touch: an easy to prepare strawberry salsa, sweet and spicy, that brings all the flavors together.

For pairing, a powerful wine that escapes from the traditional strains: Casillero del Diablo Reserva Malbec. With its aromas of black plums and blackberries, it offers a velvety palate, soft and round tannins, with distinctive notes of black pepper and vanilla, which goes perfectly with the complex seasoning of this recipe.

In a medium saucepan, heat the corn cream with the chopped basil and add the butter, milk cream, salt and pepper to taste. Stir constantly and simmer until the corn is cooked and change color to a bright glossy yellow.

Rib cap steak:

Heat a frying pan and add olive oil. Cut the carrots, onions, garlic cloves and celery into large pieces and saute them. Using the same frying pan, seal each piece of beef plate until it is gold. Add 200 cc. of beef broth, the tomato sauce, oregano and at the end, salt and pepper to taste.

Cover the pan and let it cook over a low heat for 10-15 minutes.

We recommend serving the beef plate over a generous portion of corn cream, and then on the side, put the sweet strawberry salsa for dipping.
