Any time you want to fire up the grill you won’t go wrong with this delicious steak treatment. It adds a lot of flavor and always gives me a moist and tender steak whenever I use it. Be sure to give it four to six hours to marinade so it will have enough time to penetrate the meat and work it’s magic.
MAKES: 6 servings
6 beef steaks (any cut will work)
1 1/2 tablespoons cooking oil
1 1/2 tablespoons lemon juice
6 teaspoons dried parsley (or 3 tbsp chopped fresh)
3 garlic cloves, crushed
1 1/2 teaspoons dried basil (or chopped fresh basil)
fresh ground black pepper
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
Mix oil, lemon juice, parsley, garlic, basil and pepper.
Roll steak in mixture and leave in refrigerator for at least 4 hours.
Place meat on the rack of a grill pan and cook 4 inches under or over a pre-heated grill for 5 to 7 minutes in total (rare) or 7 to 10 minutes in total (medium), basting meat with remaining oil mixture.
Season with salt and serve immediately.
This will work equally well with chicken, pork, lamb and I think it would be quite tasty used with a sturdy fish also (halibut, sword fish and the like) but with you would want to cut down the the marinating time to no longer than an hour.
