Who is ready to GRILL!? I am so ready for outdoor living and grill season.
We (cough, cough … my husband) spent some time this past weekend cleaning our decks, wiping down the outdoor furniture, bringing out the pillows and deep cleaning the grill.
Today, I pit-stopped at a store and bought some cute new outdoor plates, cups and other accessories and we are 100% grilling this weekend and I can’t wait!
Balsamic Marinated Strip Steaks are on the menu and if you haven’t made this marinade yet, you must print it out ASAP!
Since strip steak is a leaner cut of beef and pastured beef tends to be less fatty in general, I created a quick marinade that would help tenderize the meat and work really well for caramelizing on the grill.
What is so great about this marinade is that it comes together in less than two minutes and doesn’t dramatically change the flavor of the meat – it just adds a slight spice and acid which enhances the natural flavor!
