2013 – Gluten Free Living
Oh, these steaks were fantastic! This 5-ingredient recipe is really quite simple–combine a few seasonings and rub them into the steaks and then grill them to your preference of doneness! There was nothing time-consuming or difficult about this recipe but it was extremely tasty. Grilled Peppered Steaks have a rub of garlic salt, onion salt, paprika and black pepper that is almost beyond easy, yet these seasonings were very effective in flavoring the steaks to perfection. Not only that, this recipe is healthy, low calorie and gluten free.
I’ve been gradually going through my freezers and pantry trying to get rid of excess stuff. I pulled these steaks out of the freezer a couple of weeks ago and decided to use them up. They were an excellent choice for a main dish to go along with my Spaghetti Squash and Salsa posted yesterday. I started looking through Taste of Home’s website to see if I could find a new way to serve steaks and found this recipe and decided to give it a whirl. I had the rub made for these steaks, and the steaks on the grill in about 3 minutes! I love grilled foods so this quick and easy recipe was a win-win for me.
If you’re looking for a tasty way to prepare steaks, consider Grilled Peppered Steaks sometime. If you like your recipes salty use the higher amount of ingredients in the recipe–otherwise you may want to try making them with the lower amount. I thought Grilled Peppered Steaks were marvelous and I highly recommend them to you the next time you want to make a quick steak dinner. Add some fruit and a tossed salad and you can have a very low calorie but tasty dinner meal.
Grilled Peppered Steaks are very tasty. I liked this incredibly easy way to prepare steaks.
I served the steaks with a side of Spaghetti Squash with Salsa and fruit, which was a very low calorie dinner meal overall.
Here’s a close up so you can see the texture of the steak.
Grilled Peppered Steaks are gluten free for those with gluten intolerance.
This close up allows you to see the “rub,” or the seasonings that I rubbed into the steaks before grilling.
Here’s what I did.
I measured out these four seasonings into a small bowl.
Stir ingredients to combine.
Sprinkle 1/4 of the mixture on each side and press into the steaks. These steaks were rather big. The original recipe says the rub will coat four 8-oz. steaks. Each of these steaks was probably about 10-12-oz. I used all of the seasoning on the two steaks.
Spray grill with cooking spray. Place your steaks on the grill and grill over high heat, covered, about 5-10 minutes per side depending on the thickness of the meat and how done you want your steaks. Turn steaks over and grill the other side about the same amount of time.
These steaks cooked up nice and juicy. We had no need for A-1 sauce or any other steak sauce.
Here’s another close up so you can see the dry rub on the steaks. You can see flecks of paprika and pepper on the steaks.
Here’s the inside of one of the steaks.
Grilled Peppered Steaks is such a wonderful main dish entree. It hardly takes any time at all to prepare.
Here’s the recipe.
GRILLED PEPPERED STEAKS
(Recipe adapted from Taste of Home)
1-1/2 to 2 teaspoons coarsely ground pepper
½ to 1 teaspoon onion salt
½ to 1 teaspoon garlic salt
1 teaspoon paprika
4 boneless beef top loin steaks (8 ounces each) (I used 2 New York Strip Steaks)
In a small bowl, combine the pepper, onion salt, garlic salt and paprika. Rub onto both sides of steaks. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 5-10 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Yield: 4 servings.
Grilled Peppered Steaks are succulent and so flavorful.
