California Steak Salad
This salad is ideal for cold grilled steak, as reheating may overcook the meat or cause the basil and arugula to wilt. Grilling the red onion adds another layer of char and a bit of sweetness to counter the tartness of the vinaigrette.
Monterrey-Style Skirt Steak
Carne asada is the quintessential grilled dish of Mexico. At its best, it's the stuff dreams are made of. Nonetheless, it has come a long way from its origins in northern Mexico. Consider this recipe a way of preserving what carne asada really stands for: juicy, smoky, heavenly steak.

Flank Steak Panzanella Salad
This salad is even better at room temperature once the bread has absorbed some of the dressing. Swap the steak for chicken or shrimp, or omit for a side salad.
Peruvian Steak and Roasted Sweet Potato Bowl
A little meat travels far since there's no center stage in a bowl. Here, a few ounces of Peruvian steak works wonders on top. Season well, and shred or finely chop to get a little in each bite.
In Latin cuisine, a little bit of blistering on tortillas, peppers, onions, and garlic adds pleasant smoke and incredible complexity to a dish. The marinade for our Steak Tacos depends on this for bold taste that can stand up to the Toasted Chile Salsa.
If you're ready for a real game changer, make your own homemade tortillas instead of buying the bagged kind. If you're in a pinch, the La Tortilla Factory corn tortillas are the next best thing to homemade.

Tuscan-Style New York Strip with Arugula-Artichoke Salad
Based on the classic bistecca Fiorentina--grilled porterhouse--this dish uses sirloin strip steaks, which are leaner (and, because they're boneless, a little easier to grill) than porterhouse. Lemon juice is a traditional accent in the dish, meant to cut the richness of the meat. Use a mandoline to slice the artichokes thinly and evenly.
Peppered Flank Steak and Salsa
Serve this summery steak dinner with bread to bulk up this light meal.
Coffee-Rubbed Texas-Style Brisket
With larger cuts like pork shoulder or brisket that need to smoke for hours, maintaining an even temperature is critical to prevent overcooking or drying out your meat.

Grilled Flank Steak with Onions, Avocado, and Tomatoes
Use colorful in-season heirloom tomatoes for a pretty presentation.
Basic Grilled Steak
Turn the steaks only once as you cook them. The more time they’re in direct contact with the grill, the better. And speaking of better, nothing is better with a grilled steak than sweet, grilled corn-on-the cob. Coat fresh ears of corn with butter-flavored cooking spray; place the corn on the grill rack, and grill over direct heat, covered, 15 to 20 minutes or until the corn is tender, turning occasionally.

Adobo Flank Steak with Summer Corn-and-Tomato Relish
Sherry vinegar, with its sour-sweet flavor and deep notes of oak, is the secret ingredient in the relish.

Sherry vinegar is also delicious on grilled vegetable salads, especially those featuring zucchini, bell peppers, and chiles.
Hoisin Grilled Sirloin
Hoisin sauce is thick, sweet, and spicy. It’s most commonly used as a dipping sauce for a variety of Chinese dishes. Brushing the grilled sirloin with the hoisin mixture gives your meat added flavor. You can find hoisin sauce in Asian markets and large supermarkets. Serve the sirloin with snow peas and rice for a balanced meal.

Hickory Grilled Beef with Henry Bain Sauce
The zesty sauce, created in 1881 by Henry Bain, headwaiter of the Louisville Pendennis Club, is also great with grilled steak, pork, or chicken. Major Grey's chutney is a thick, chunky, spicy Indian condiment; look for it in the supermarket near the steak sauces.

Ground almonds thicken this lively herb sauce. The pesto is also good as a spread for burgers and sandwiches, or as a pizza sauce. Most of the fat here is monounsaturated.
Grilled Sirloin Skewers with Peaches and Peppers
Kebabs are great for entertaining because they’re as easy to serve as they are to prepare. If you’re expecting vegetarians, cook the meat and vegetables on separate skewers, so guests who don’t want meat can pick up a kebab of vegetables. If your guests assemble their own skewers, place the meat and vegetables in separate bowls.
