Salt to taste

Herb Rub:
2 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano
2 teaspoons freshly grated lemon peel
3 cloves garlic, chopped
1/4 teaspoon pepper


Combine herb rub ingredients in small bowl; reserve 2 teaspoons for garnish. Press remaining seasoning evenly onto beef steaks. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, uncovered, 15 to 18 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning occasionally. Carve steaks into slices. Sprinkle with reserved seasoning and salt, as desired.

Cook’s Tip: To prepare on gas grill, preheat grill according to manufacturer’s directions for medium heat. Grill steaks, covered, 11 to 15 minutes for medium rare to medium doneness, turning occasionally.
