grilled eye round steaks with wasabi-yougrt cream


  • 1 beef eye round steaks, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 4 oz each)
  • 1 1/2 cup plain yogurt, divided
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh ginger
  • 1 tablespoon finely chopped garlic
  • 1 teaspoon wasabi paste


Combine 1/2 cup yogurt, ginger and garlic in small bowl. Place beef steaks and yogurt mixture in food-safe plastic bag; turn steaks to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.

Meanwhile line a strainer with paper towels; set over small bowl. Place remaining 1 cup yogurt in strainer. Cover; let drain in refrigerator 30 minutes or as long as overnight to thicken.

Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 10 to 12 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas gril, times remain the same) for medium rare (145°F) doneness, turning occasionally. (Do not overcook.)

Meanwhile combine thickened yogurt and wasabi paste. Set aside.

Carve steaks into thin slices; season with salt and pepper, as desired. Serve with wasabi- yogurt mixture.

Cook's Tip: Two tablespoons prepared horseradish may be substituted for wasabi paste.
