Oh the fresh flavors of Italian cooking! This recipe is perfect for summertime grilling. This recipe made enough for 8 people and believe me, there was not a scrap left! The steak is marinated for several hours, so leave enough time in your day for preparation!
Serves 8 ( 8 points +)
- 2 lbs. sirloin steak
- 4 T. olive oil, divided
- 2 T. crushed garlic
- 2 T. lemon rind, grated
- 8-10 fresh thyme sprigs
- 2 lemons
- salt and pepper
- 2 lbs. medium-sized red potatoes
Place 2 T. olive oil, garlic and lemon rind in a large gallon sized ziplock bag. Add steak and make sure that marinade covers both sides of steaks. Refrigerate for 4 hours. Remove steak from marinade, sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Meanwhile, place potatoes in a pot of water, bring to a boil for about 15 minutes or until somewhat tender, but not too tender. Remove from water. Cool enough to handle and slice into 1/4 inch rounds.
Place potatoes in a bowl and toss with 2 T. olive oil.
Slice lemons into 8 slices.
Grill steaks to desired doneness. Remove and let stand 10 minutes before slicing thinly against the grain.
Carefully place potatoes on grill rack and grill for a couple minutes per side or until done. Remove and sprinkle with salt and pepper.
Grill lemons for about 2 minutes per side. Serve steak with potatoes and lemon slices.
