INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 ¼ pounds steak (Boneless Strip, 1-1 1/4 Inches Thick, Trimmed)
  • ½ tsp salt, divided
  • ¼ tsp white ground pepper
  • 2 zucchini or summer squash, chopped
  • 1 medium onion, sliced

PREPARATION:

  • Place a grill basket on one half of a grill; preheat to medium-high.
  • Season steak with 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper. Toss summer squash and/or zucchini and onion in a large bowl with 1 tablespoon oil and the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt.
  • Transfer the vegetables to the grill basket. Cook, stirring once or twice, until tender and charred, 8 to 10 minutes. Oil the other side of the grill rack and grill the steak, turning once, 3 to 4 minutes per side for medium rare. Let rest on a clean cutting board for 5 minutes.
