  • 2-4 garlic cloves minced, divided
  • 1 tbsp dried thyme divided
  • 1 tsp salt divided
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper divided
  • 3 tbsp olive oil divided
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tbsp dijon mustard
  • 1 tsp red pepper flakes optional
  • 1 lbs boneless Top sirloin steak
  • 4 medium yukon gold potatoes washed and chopped into 1 inch pieces
  • 1 large yellow onions sliced into 1/4 inches rounds
  • 1/2 cup grape tomatoes
  • 2 cups romaine lettuce torn into 1 inch pieces
  • 2 cups arugula
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • *a metal grill basket is useful for bbq'ing the vegetables - especially the tomatoes
  1. In a small bowl, mix together 1-2 minced garlic cloves, 1/4 tsp black pepper, 1/2 tsp salt, 1/2 tbsp thyme, and red pepper flakes (optional). Use the remaining seasonings for dressing. Spread garlic-thyme mixture on steak and allow to rest for ~10 minutes.
  2. Mix remaining garlic, thyme, salt, and black pepper with 2 tbsp olive oil, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, and 1 tbsp dijon mustard to make dressing.
  3. Toss potatoes, onions, and grape tomatoes in remaining 1 tbsp olive oil. Sprinkle with additional salt and pepper to taste.
  4. Prepare grill.
  5. Place steaks on grill, grill for approximately 10-15 minutes or until steaks are cooked to desired wellness
  6. Place potatoes on grill at the same time as steak. Recommend using a grill basket coated in oil. Cook 10-15 minutes turning frequently until potatoes are soft on the inside and charred on the outside.
  7. When steak and potatoes are within 5 minutes of being done grilling, place tomatoes in the grill basket with potatoes, and the 1/4 inch onion rounds directly on the grill. Cook for 5 minutes, turning occasionally until charred.
  8. If you're not grilling, then potatoes, onions, and tomatoes can be roasted in the oven at 400 degrees for 10 minutes. Steak can be panfried for approximately 5-7 minutes per side over medium heat.
  9. Remove steak and vegetables from grill. Let steak rest for at least 5 minutes and then slice.
  10. Arrange steak, potatoes, onions slices, and tomatoes with romaine and arugula on a serving platter. Drizzle with dressing to serve.
