Missy, here. It's time for a late summer cookout. And we're splurging on steaks (with apologies to our vegan/vegetarian friends!).
Actually, we're not really splurging. I got a great deal on steaks! I usually buy my meat when it's marked down.
I also buy the cheaper cuts (usually get chuck, although this wasn't), so I start out by rubbing the meat with olive oil. Then I sprinkle on Adolph's Tenderizer. Sprinkle generously, but not too generously or it'll be too salty. Then I shake on a healthy coating of Montreal Steak seasoning. My family loves it!
I let the steaks sit for about 15-30 minutes, which lets the tenderizer work and also lets the meat come closer to room temp.
Then I bribe my husband to do the grilling. I tell him if he doesn't want his steak too done (and tough), he better do it himself! I won't even try to tell you how long to cook it. I never seem to get the timing right. I'd rather recruit help. :)
Here they are cooking on our gas grill. I love charcoal grills, but I'm too lazy to mess with them. I love the ease of cooking with gas.
Serve with fried okra and fresh corn-on-the-cob, or maybe a baked potato or baked sweet potato instead of the corn, and you're all set with a fantastic dinner!
