Need a quick and easy recipe for the grill tonight or this weekend? We just came up with this recipe for an easy weeknight summer dinner from the grill! So simple yet delicious.
Don’t eat red meat? Use the marinade for boneless chicken breast instead!
Here’s the easy recipe:
1.5 to 2 lbs of sirloin steak (we used strip steak)
1/4 cup of balsamic vinegar
1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
3 to 4 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced or minced
small handful of fresh parsley, chopped (or can use basil or cilantro)
Sea salt (about 1 tsp)
black pepper to taste
Place steak in large dish. Season with salt & pepper. Mix remaining ingredients in a small bowl and spread on steak. Turn steak over to coat on both sides. Let marinate for up to one hour and then sit at room temp for about 10 minutes before grilling. Oil grill grates and turn heat to medium/high heat. Cook steak for about 5 to 8 minutes each side, or to desired level of doneness. Serve with a few simple summer salads for an easy dinner. We loved it with our Watermelon & Feta Salad, recipe and photo below:
