Zesty Denver Steak with Grilled Tomatoes

Servings : 2 Prep Time : 20 minutes Total Time : 6 hours 40 minutes

INGREDIENTS

  • 2 Denver steaks
  • 2 tsp orange zest
  • ¼ cup orange juice
  • 3 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 2 tsp salt and pepper
  • 1 tsp fresh thyme, minced leaves and stem

TOMATO SALAD

  • 2-3 heirloom tomatoes, cut into 1/2 inches thick slices
  • 1 cup spring mix or microgreens

PREPARATION

Combine orange zest, orange juice, dijon mustard, balsamic vinegar, garlic, and thyme in a medium bowl or large freezer bag. Reserve 3 tbsp of the orange marinade for the salad.

Add Denver steaks to orange marinade and allow steaks to marinate for at least 2 hours in the fridge (preferably overnight).

Remove steaks from the fridge 30-45 minutes before grilling. Remove steaks from marinade and discard remaining mixture. Season the steaks and tomato slices with salt and pepper.

Heat the grill to 400 F. Grill tomatoes until each side has charred grill marks, about 5-6 minutes. For the steaks, grill each side at least 4 minutes for medium-rare or until the internal temperature measures 130 F. Remove from heat and allow to cool for 5-10 minutes. Slice against the grain for maximum tenderness.

Toss salad mix with reserved marinade. Add grilled tomato slices and enjoy alongside the zangy grilled Denver steak.
