Balsamic-Marinated Steaks with Vegetable Packets


  • 2/3 Cup Canola Oil
  • 1/3 Cup Balsamic Vinegar
  • 2 Tbsp. Brown Sugar, packed
  • 1 Tbsp. Steak Seasoning
  • ½ Large Red Onion, sliced
  • 2 Medium Orange, Red and /or Yellow Bell Peppers, sliced
  • ½ Medium Head of Cauliflower, cut into small florets (about 2 cups)
  • 4 Top Sirloin Steaks (about 6 ounces each)
  • ½ Tsp Salt


  1. In medium bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, brown sugar and steak seasoning. Place vegetables in large zip-top plastic bag; pour half the marinade into bag. Place 2 steaks in each of 2 large zip-top plastic bags; pour half the remaining marinade into each bag. Seal bags, pressing out extra air; refrigerate at least 1 hour or up to 4 hours.
  2. Prepare grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. Place four 12-inch square sheets of aluminum foil on work surface. With slotted spoon, evenly divide vegetables onto center of each foil sheet; sprinkle vegetables with salt. For each packet, bring top and bottom sides of foil together over vegetables; crimp together and fold down over vegetables. Double fold both ends of packets toward vegetables.
  3. Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Place steaks and packets on hot grill rack. Cook steaks, covered, 6 to 8 minutes or until grill marks appear and internal temperature reaches 135°F, turning once halfway through cooking; cook packets 12 minutes, turning once halfway through cooking. Transfer steak to cutting board; let steak stand 10 minutes. Internal temperature will rise to 145° upon standing for medium-rare.
  4. To serve, slice steak across the grain and serve with vegetables.


Serve vegetables in foil packets for a just-off-the-grill look.
