Grilled Steak with Pepper Relish for Two

  • Active Time 35m
  • Total Time 35m

2 servings

Here, we toss colorful bell peppers in a balsamic-herb vinaigrette and grill them in a foil packet at the same time as the steak for a no-fuss dinner for two. Serve with corn on the cob.

ingredients

  • 1 1/2 small or 1 large red, yellow and/or orange bell pepper, sliced
  • 1/2 small onion, halved and sliced
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons capers, rinsed
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons finely chopped fresh thyme or 1/2 teaspoon dried, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
  • 8 ounces sirloin steak or strip steak (1 to 1 1/4 inches thick), trimmed and cut into 4 portions
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • Tip: : To oil a grill rack, oil a folded paper towel, hold it with tongs and rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill.)

directions

Preheat the grill to medium.

Combine the bell peppers, onion, vinegar, oil, capers, 1 teaspoons fresh thyme (or 1/4 teaspoon dried) and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl.

Stack two 20-inch-long pieces of foil. Arrange the pepper mixture on one half and fold the foil. Tightly seal the packet by crimping and folding the edges together.

Sprinkle both sides of the steak with the garlic powder, the remaining thyme and 1/8 teaspoon each salt and pepper.

Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Place the steak and foil packet on the grill. Grill the steak about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare, 5 minutes per side for medium. Grill the packet until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. Let the steak rest for 5 minutes. Serve the steak with the peppers.
