Grill the ultimate steak by preheating the grill and not overhandling the meat (don't turn and poke it constantly). Letting it rest before slicing gives the juices a chance to redistribute in the meat so the steak will still be juicy when cut.

Ingredients

  • 1/2 teaspoon celery seeds
  • 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper and garlic powder
  • 450 g beef strip loin grilling steak 1 inch thick
  • 1 red onion cut in 1/2-inch (1 cm) thick rings
  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 1 asparagus trimmed
  • 6 cups torn hearts of romaine lettuce (about 198 g)
  • 70 g pepper-coated goat cheese crumbled
Vinaigrette:
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 3 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sun-dried tomato pesto
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Method

Combine celery seed, salt, pepper and garlic powder; rub all over steak.


Brush onion with some of the oil; toss asparagus with remaining oil.


Place steak, onion and asparagus on greased grill over medium-high heat; close lid and grill, turning once, until steak is medium-rare, onion is softened and asparagus is tender-crisp, about 8 minutes. Remove to cutting board. Let steak stand for 5 minutes before thinly slicing. Meanwhile, halve onion and asparagus.


Vinaigrette: Meanwhile, in large bowl, whisk together oil, vinegar, pesto and
pepper. Add lettuce, onion and asparagus; toss to coat. Sprinkle with goat cheese. Serve with steak.
