  • 2-3 Skirt Steaks
  • 1.25 cups Chopped Cilantro
  • ¼ cup Minced Garlic
  • 2 medium Limes juiced
  • 2 medium Oranges juiced
  • 2 tbsp Jalapeno Puree
  • 1.5 tbsp Kosher Salt
  • Oil as needed

Elote Sauce:

Grilled Corn:


  • 1 pack Slider Rolls
  • 6-8 Cheddar Cheese Slices
  • 1 cup Melted Butter



  • Begin by adding the cilantro, minced garlic, lime juice, orange juice and oil into a bowl and mixing together thoroughly.
  • Next, add your skirt steak to a food safe bag/bowl and pour in your marinade. Mix together to coat all the steak.
  • Seal and place in the fridge for at least 4 hours but ideally overnight.
  • Preheat your fire to high heat (around 450F) for direct grilling.
  • Pull your steaks out of the bag and discard any excess marinade.
  • Add your steaks to the grill to cook for about 1.5-2.5 minutes per side or until they are 125F internal.
  • Once done, pull the steaks off and let them rest for 10 minutes.
  • Once rested, slice your steaks against the grain then into bite size cubes.


  • Preheat your grill to medium high temperature (around 375F) for direct cooking.
  • Next, spray your corn with Primal Kitchen Avocado Oil and season with salt, pepper and garlic.
  • Grill your corn over the high heat for 6-8 minutes until fully cooked and slightly charred.
  • Pull off the grill and slice the corn off the cob.
  • Add the corn to a bowl and mix together with all of the other ingredients for the Grilled Corn.


  • Mix in a bowl all the ingredients for the Elote Sauce.


  • While keeping the slider rolls together, slice your Sliders Rolls in half so there is a top side and bottom side.
  • Add the bottom side into a foil bin or cooking safe skillet.
  • Add a layer of sliced steak, grilled corn, sliced cheddar cheese, more grilled corn and then the top part of the buns.
  • In a bowl, melt some butter. Gently spread the melted butter over the top of the rolls then top.
  • Get your smoker to a medium heat (around 300-325F) for indirect cooking.
  • Add your sliders in the foil bin on to the smoker to cook until they are golden brown & crispy (about 10-12 minutes).
  • Once done, pull the sliders off and let cool for 2-3 minutes before serving.
  • Serve with the Elote Sauce for dipping on the side.
