1. For the Salsa, remove husks and silk strands from corn. Soak in water for 15 minutes. Grill corn over medium-high heat 10 minutes or until tender and lightly charred, turning occasionally. Cut kernels off cobs (about 2 cups). Mix corn, tomatillos, cilantro, green onion, radish, red onion, lime juice, oil, jalapeño peppers and salt in large bowl until well blended. Cover. Refrigerate at least 15 minutes to blend flavors.
2. For the Steak, place all ingredients except steak in food processor. Cover. Process until smooth. Reserve 2 tablespoons. Place steak in glass dish. Add remaining adobo; turn to coat well. Cover. Refrigerate 15 minutes or longer for extra flavor. Remove steak from adobo. Discard any remaining adobo.
3. Grill steak over medium-high heat 3 to 4 minutes per side or until desired doneness, brushing with reserved 2 tablespoons adobo. Grill onions 2 to 3 minutes per side or until slightly charred. Grill tortillas 1 minute per side or until warmed.
4. Slice steak into thin slices. Slice onions into thin strips. Serve steak and onions in tortillas. Top with Salsa.
Test Kitchen Tip:
Boiler onions are small onions with a sweet, pungent flavor. They are often used whole in recipes for stews, kabobs and roasts. If unavailable, substitute cippolini or small sweet onions.
