Grilled Marinated Steak and Vegetables

  • Yield: 6 servings


2pounds boneless steak (top round, sirloin or flank)
1cup Italian salad dressing, divided
12ounces (about 3 3/4 cups) large white button mushrooms, halved
1large red onion, cut in 8 wedges
2small (about 2 cups) zucchini, cut in 1-inch rounds
8large cherry tomatoes


  1. Preheat grill or broiler. With fork tines pierce steak on both sides. In a shallow pan or resealable plastic bag place steak. Add 1/2 cup of the salad dressing; turn meat to coat; marinate for 15 minutes. In the center of a broiler rack or grill place steak (discard marinade). Cook steak about 5 minutes; turn.
  2. Place mushrooms, onion and zucchini around steak; brush vegetables lightly with Italian dressing. Cook until meat is done as desired (6 to 8 minutes longer for medium rare) and vegetables are tender, adding cherry tomatoes a few minutes before steak is done.
  3. Transfer steak to a carving board; let stand for 5 minutes. Place vegetables in a bowl; sprinkle with any remaining dressing. Cut meat in thin diagonal slices and serve with vegetables.
