Balsamic-Marinated Steaks with Herb Butter and Grilled Asparagus
Prep: 20 minutes plus marinating and standing
Grill: 6 minutes • Serves: 4
2-1/2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon packed brown sugar
1-1/2 teaspoons steak seasoning
4 New York strip or top sirloin steaks (about 6 ounces each)
1/2 cup unsalted butter (1 stick), softened
2 tablespoons finely chopped fresh parsley leaves
1 tablespoon finely chopped chives
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon ground white pepper
1 tablespoon olive oil
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon fresh ground black pepper
1.Prepare Steak: In medium bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, brown sugar and steak seasoning. Place 2 steaks in each of 2 large zip-top plastic bags; pour half the marinade into each bag. Seal bags, pressing out extra air; refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours.
2.Meanwhile, prepare Herb Butter: In medium bowl, stir all ingredients until well combined.
3.Prepare Asparagus: In large bowl, toss asparagus with oil, salt and pepper.
4.Prepare grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Place steaks and asparagus on hot grill rack; cover and cook steaks 6 to 8 minutes or until grill marks appear and internal temperature reaches 135°, turning once halfway through cooking; cook asparagus 6 minutes or until tender-crisp, turning frequently. Transfer steaks to cutting board; let stand 10 minutes. Internal temperature will rise to 145° upon standing for medium-rare.
5.To serve, slice steak across the grain; top each steak with 1 tablespoon Herb Butter.
