Sunday nights are usually a easy tea time treat for me…the last thing I want to do is spend my last minutes of my weekend in the kitchen, easiest thing… heat up the grill….
Jazzing up plain beef steaks and making a delicious warm grill vegetable salad is my choice..and you’ll impress all who have the chance to try it!
Ingredients: Serving for 4
800 g lean beef steaks : ( 2 thin steaks for each person)
2 tablespoons dried oregano
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 clove garlic, crushed
1 bunch white or green asparagus
6 small artichokes
3 vines of cherry tomatoes
Preparation: Mix marinade ingredients together in a bowl, add beef steaks, turning to coat thoroughly, cover with plastic wrap and leave to marinade in refrigerator for up to 30 minutes.
Preheat bbq grill to medium/ high
I used white asparagus, grilling that first, slicing each one in half..turning continously on grill, followed by the artichokes,( I pre-steam mine for about 8 mins).
Next grill the beef, around 2 minutes each side – or until cooked to your liking…finally the cherry tomatoes.
Arrange firstly the asparagus and artichokes on serving plate…slice the beef into thin slices…cover with a lavish amount of basil pesto and cherry tomatoes on top. Lightly season, drizzled with olive oil and balsamic vinegar.
