Ingredients

  • 4 beef round (sirloin) tip side steaks, cut 1 inch thick (about 8 ounces each)
  • 1 pound fresh asparagus
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper

    Marinade:

  • 2/3 cup prepared balsamic vinaigrette
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard


Directions

  2. Place asparagus in shallow microwave-safe dish; add 1/2 cup water. Cover and microwave on HIGH 3 to 6 minutes or until crisp-tender. Drain asparagus. Add reserved 2 tablespoons marinade to asparagus; turn to coat. Set aside.
  3. Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 12 to 14 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 13 to 14 minutes) for medium rare (145F) doneness, turning once. (Do not overcook.)
  4. During last 3 minutes of grilling, arrange asparagus on grid around steaks; grill 2 to 3 minutes, turning once. Season steaks and asparagus with salt and pepper.
