Add corn and chicken stock and stir until stock has evaporated and corn is tender (2-3 minutes), then season to taste and set aside.
- 3Barbecue steaks over medium to medium-high heat, turning occasionally, until cooked to your liking (3-4 minutes each side for medium-rare). Set aside to rest (5 minutes).
- 4Tear cos into a bowl, drizzle with buttermilk dressing and serve with steak and potato hash.
