What Better Start to Grill Tuesday than Steak!

I love when the calendar turns to April!  My brain is on auto pilot with thoughts of gardening and grilling. Lately, our weather is the total opposite of grill friendly outdoors.  Unless you care to grill with an umbrella over your head and wearing your rain slicker!

My grill Tuesday is being done on my Cuisinart indoor grill. This is probably one of the most valuable cooking tools I own in my kitchen.  The plates are removable and dishwasher friendly.  One side holds the griddle plates I use to make pancakes and grilled cheese while the other side holds the grill plates.  The grill side I use for steaks, burgers, chicken or whatever your heart desires.

These are Angus strip steaks that I topped with a light coating of EVOO (extra virgin olive oil), and seasoned on both sides with garlic salt, onion salt, and lemon pepper seasoning.  Grilled 8-9 minutes on each side and served with fresh green beans.  I pay more for my organic fresh green beans this time of year but it's really worth every penny! Some of the best organic produce I use for my cooking I order from  I've been a Peapod customer for over 15 years and they don't disappoint.  Grocery delivery to your door for a minimal delivery fee. Soon my thoughts will turn to gardening and growing my own veggies. (Future blog)!  Enjoy!

The sizzle of steaks on the grill is hard to resist. After the steak is finished cooking, let it rest on a plate for 5-6 minutes.  This will ensure the juices distribute inside the steak and stay inside once you cut into your meal. 

The flip side of the grill makes great grilled cheese sandwiches.

Just a pinch of simple spices and seasonings can make a difference in the taste.
