There’s nothing better than grilled beef in the summertime. Beef has nutrients like high- quality protein, iron, zinc and B vitamins that can help you and your family stay active and strong all summer long. Plus it’s affordable! Grocers usually have great steak deals in summer months, especially around holidays like Labor Day.
My daughter absolutely LOVES steak and begs for it all the time. When she sees me grilling beef, she begs to help and waits patiently for it to cook. We also love grilling vegetables, as it brings out so much flavor. Green beans and heirloom tomatoes are
some of our favorites to pair together.

We use this marinade for New York Strip and Ribeye Steaks. It’s great for making shish kabobs as well. We love grilling our steak for maximum taste and tenderness.

  • Pre-heat grill to medium-high heat. Once the grill is hot, clean it with a wire brush and then oil the grates.
  • Place steak on the grill and cook for about 4 to 5 minutes per side.
  • Beef’s tender, juicy texture is optimum when cooked to medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness.
  • To determine doneness, insert an instant-read thermometer horizontally into the side of the steaks. Place the thermometer in the thickest part. The thermometer should not touch bone, fat or the grill.

Here’s my awesome husband grilling the steaks for us after work! My daughter does not leave his side once he is home. She’s his little side kick.

We also grilled vegetables, which are so simple to make. All you need to do is place your vegetables into foil, drizzle with olive oil and sprinkle on salt and pepper. Then fold up the sides and cook along side your steaks for about 15 minutes.

Grilled summer vegetables -healthy and delicious!

    I love how easy this is! We are big beef eaters here too. My youngest LOVES steak and at 3 can eat an entire 5oz steak himself. In other news…I’m going to need to buy a Costco for myself when my boys are teenagers :P
