We are in the throes of Summer and I have been taking advantage of these beautiful days to walk, play tennis and grill out.  This recipe has become a family favorite and leftovers can be used to make delicious fajitas.Grilled Flank Steak

1 Sweet Onion, Peeled and sliced
4 Tablespoons of Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Combine Olive Oil and spices in a Ziplock bag and mix well. Add peppers and onion to the Ziplock bag and marinade overnight, turning the bag several times to coat the vegetables.

Heat charcoal grill, I recommend using the chimney starter by Weber and letting the coals get hot for 20 to 25 minutes.

Drain the peppers and onion. Place in double wrapped foil or a grill pan and put on the grill. Cook for approximately 20 minutes. After the peppers and onion have been on the grill for 6 minutes,
remove the Flank Steaks from the marinade and put on the grill. If flames shoot up, place the lid on the grill, making sure the vents are open. Cook for 7 to 8 minutes. Turn the Flank steaks and cook for an additional 7 to 8 minutes. Let the steaks rest for 5 minutes. Slice against the grain.

That’s all for this week.  Until next time…From our Butcher Block to your Table.
