  • 1 pound beef Top Round Steak, cut 3/4 inch thick
  • 1 pound asparagus, trimmed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 tablespoon shredded Parmesan cheese
  • salt
  • hot cooked oroz
  • 1/4 cup red wine vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme, chopped
  • 2 large cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 teaspoon steak seasoning blend
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper


Combine marinade ingredients in medium bowl. Place beef steak and marinade in food-safe plastic bag; turn steak to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight, turning occasionally.

Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Toss asparagus with oil. Place steak in center of grid over medium, ash-covered coals; arrange asparagus around steak. Grill steak, covered, 10 to 11 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, times remain the same) for medium rare (145°F) doneness, turning occasionally. (Do not overcook) Grill asparagus 6 to 10 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, covered, 8 to 12 minutes) or until crisp-tender, turning occasionally.

Immediately sprinkle cheese over asparagus. Carve steak into thin slices. Season with salt, as desired. Serve with asparagus and orzo, if desired.
