Beef Top Loin Steaks with Grilled Balsamic Vegetables

Total recipe time: 35 to 40 minutes

Makes 4 servings

 

Ingredients

        2 boneless beef top loin (strip) steaks, cut 1 inch thick (about 8 ounces each)

        1/4 cup balsamic vinegar

   2  teaspoons garlic-pepper seasoning

   1 medium red onion, cut into 12 wedges
  
   1 medium yellow squash, cut lengthwise in half

   1 medium zucchini, cut lengthwise in half
   
   2 tablespoons olive oil
       
   1/2 teaspoon fresh oregano or thyme

   Salt

 

Instructions

1.          Bring vinegar to a boil in small saucepan. Reduce heat; simmer about 3 minutes or until reduced by half. Set aside.

2.          Press 1 teaspoon garlic-pepper seasoning evenly onto beef steaks.

3.          Soak two 10-inch bamboo skewers in water 10 minutes; drain. Thread onion wedges onto skewers. Brush onions and cut sides of squash with oil; sprinkle with remaining teaspoon garlic-pepper seasoning.

4.          Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange vegetables around steaks. Grill steaks, covered, 11 to 14 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 11 to 15 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium doneness (160°F), turning occasionally. Grill squash 8 to 12 minutes (7 to 11 minutes for gas) and onions 12 to 15 minutes (13 to 16 minutes for gas) or until tender, turning occasionally.

5.          Remove onions from skewers; toss reduced vinegar, oregano and salt, as desired. Carve steaks into slices. Serve with onion mixture and squash; season steak and squash with salt, as desired.
