This recipe is from the archives, it’s an oldie but I still make this all the time! If you don’t have an outdoor grill, you can use your broiler or even purchase an indoor grill pan, (this is the one I use).

Grilled Steak With Tomatoes, Red Onion and Balsamic

One of my favorite ways to make grilled steak in the summer is topped with fresh chopped tomatoes, red onion, balsamic and oil. It's fresh and a great way to enjoy those end-of-summer tomatoes!

Ingredients:

  • 2 lb flank or london broil steak
  • kosher salt and fresh pepper
  • garlic powder
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tbsp balsamic
  • 1/3 cup red onion, chopped
  • 3-4 tomatoes, chopped (about 3 1/2 cups)
  • 1 tbsp fresh herbs such as oregano, basil or parsley

Directions:

  1. Pierce steak all over with a fork. Season generously with salt, pepper and garlic powder and set aside about 10 minutes at room temperature.
  2. In a large bowl, combine onions, olive oil, balsamic, salt and pepper. Let onions sit a few minutes with the salt and balsamic to mellow a bit. Combine with tomatoes and fresh herbs and adjust seasoning if needed.
  3. Heat grill or broiler on high heat. Cook steak about 7 minutes on each side for medium rare or longer to taste. Remove from grill and let it rest on a plate for about 5 minutes before slicing.
  4. Slice steak thin on the diagonal; top with tomatoes and serve.
