Grilled Steak Tips with Home-Grown Rosemary Rub

grilled steak tips with home-grown rosemary rub
This is one of my favorite ways to grill meat. I came up with this rub after I had a large harvest of rosemary from my garden. This is a very simple and quick rub and it is great on any meat. Recently I used the same rub on lamb loin chops and they came out wonderfully.  I served these grilled steak tips with boiled home grown potatoes and a pat of benecol*, and garden herb/vegetable salad with a balsamic vinaigrette.  

Grilled Steak Tips with Home-Grown Rosemary Rub

Ingredients:

5 sprigs rosemary, remove leaves and chopped
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 shallot, thinly sliced
1 tsp Hawaiian pink sea salt (or any other sea salt)
2 Tbsp olive oil
1.5 lb steak tips

Method:

1) Preheat grill to 300 F.
2) Mix the first 5 ingredients in a mortar and pestle and gently crush the mixture. 
3) Rub the mixture onto the meat and let sit for 5-10 minutes.
4) Grill the meat for 10 to 12 minutes total (or grill to your liking)--flip the steaks after grilling every 3-4 minutes to prevent burning.
5) You may drizzle a little olive oil on the grilled meat right before serving.  
6) Serve meat with any side dishes.

*My father-in-law and his colleagues helped create benecol when he worked for a paper company. My father-in-law tells me that his cardiologist recommended that he uses benecol!  I don't believe that his doctor has any knowledge that he played a part in the creation of benecol. Benecol has many health benefits and to me it tastes as good as butter. To learn more about benecol please visit:  http://www.benecol.com
