Balsamic Grilled Steaks
It’s time to enjoy a delicious steaks such as these Balsamic Grilled Steaks.
A few weeks ago, I was really craving a steak, a grilled steak. The only problem was, the wind outside was so strong that I was a little nervous to fire up the grill in our backyard that backs up to the woods. Could you imagine? I figured with my luck the wind would catch the grill flame and I would end up firing up the woods. That’s not exactly the way I wanted to introduce myself to the neighborhood.
So, I opted for the next best thing, indoor grilling! I was able to pick up a cast iron grill pan during the holidays at a great price, then we went into moving mode and I never got a chance to use it.
I am a believer now. This grill pan is AMAZING! All I did was lay it on top of the burner on my stove, then I turned up the heat to medium high and grilled steaks and veggies. It would be the perfect tool for these Grilled Romaine Salads too. Indoor Grilling is perfect for those that either can’t grill outside, may not have a grill, or if it is just way too cold or in my case windy to grill outside.
These steaks took a bit longer than normal to grill because of the thickness. I had them on one side of my pan then I had another burner turned on the stove with veggies on the other side of the pan.
To give these steaks a bit of flavor, I simply marinated them in Balsamic Dressing with a little bit of garlic. They were tender, juicy, and delicious!
Did I mention I’m in love with that grill pan? Yes, I’ll be grilling now ALL the time.
Ready to fire up the grill? Or maybe just the stove?
