First Steak of Summer!


You know what time it is? BBQ time!  The sun is shining, the weather is perfect, what a better time to have a classic steak?

Nothing fancy about this post, just excited to have a grilled steak finally after such a long time!  Too bad the cut of meat we got wasn’t very good — we had to cook it to medium, but still, nothing like sitting outside with a cold beverage and a big ‘ole hunk of meat!

No recipe again this time — just simple seasoning.  Garlic powder and onion powder for one, and bbq sauce for the next.

Choice of veggies today?  Asparagus and bell peppers!

Throw some garlic in foil as well, and you’ll get a fantastic topping.

My trick to cooking steak on the grill?  Getting it nice and hot before hand.

Let it warm up a good 10-15 mins before hand, so that it sears the outside of the meat.  Place everything directly on the grill!  No point in grilling if you don’t get the hash marks.

I personally don’t like burned bell peppers, so we take them out when they are still nice and vibrant looking.

As for the steak?  Cook it how you like it.  I like rare, however only with a good cut of meat.  As the piece we had was previously frozen and not of the highest grade, we decided to leave it in a few mins longer.

Ta da!  First steak of Summer!  We’ll be grilling quite a bit more over the Summer, so get ready for a whole lot of BBQ!
