Grilled Sirloin Steak with Pesto and Asparagus

Grilled Sirloin Steak with Pesto and Asparagus

Yield 2 servings

Flavorful garlic scape pesto makes this steak and asparagus a quick, and easy dish for a weeknight dinner.

Ingredients

  • 2 top sirloin steaks (about 4 ounces each)
  • 1 bunch (about 1 pound) asparagus, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons Escape Garlic Scape Pesto, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

Instructions

  • Remove steaks from the refrigerator and bring to room temperature. Heat gas or charcoal grill for high heat. In a large bowl, toss asparagus with one tablespoon of the pesto.
  • Pat steak dry with paper towels, sprinkled with salt and pepper.
  • Place steak and asparagus on the grill. Cook the steak and asparagus 4 to 5 minutes per side, turning once until a thermometer inserted into the thickest part of the steak registers 125°F for medium-rare or desired doneness and asparagus is crisp-tender.
  • Rest the steaks on a cutting board 5 minutes before slicing. Serve steaks and asparagus with additional pesto.
