- 500 g beef rump steak

Peel back husks on corn cobs. Remove silk and discard. Roll husks back again to cover cobs. Place on a microwave-safe plate. Microwave corn on HIGH (100%) for 3 minutes. Cool. Remove and discard husks. Brush corn with half the oil.
Combine spice mix and remaining oil in a glass or ceramic dish. Add beef. Rub to coat. Preheat a barbecue grill or hotplate on high. Cook beef for 3 minutes each side for medium or until cooked to your liking. Transfer to a large plate. Cover loosely with foil. Set aside for 5 minutes to rest.
Meanwhile, cook corn and capsicum, turning, for 6 to 8 minutes or until tender and lightly charred. Transfer corn to a chopping board. Carefully cut kernels from cobs in large chunks. Set aside to cool slightly.
Grill tortillas on barbecue for 1 minute each side or until lightly charred.
Meanwhile, make Fresh Tomato and Lime Salsa. Combine all ingredients in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
