BBQ Beef and Chargrilled Vegetables

  • Ensure all vegetable are cut to a similar size. Keep mushrooms whole. Toss in a tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Toss the beef in a tablespoon of olive oil and season with salt and pepper.
  • Preheat your BBQ to medium high heat. Lay all the vegetables evenly spaced on the grill. Cook for 3-4 minutes each side.
  • For the beef, cook on one side until the first sign of moisture appears. Turn steaks once only. Test the steaks for degree of doneness with tongs. Rare is soft, medium feels springy and well done is very firm. Remove steaks from heat, loosely cover with foil and rest steaks for 5 minutes before serving.
