Grilled Steak

Pistachio Pesto (makes 3/4 cups)


  • Liberally coat steaks with salt and pepper. Light grill and grill steaks on indirect hat for 4-5 minutes per side, or until desired doneness.
  • While steaks cook, make the pesto - place everything but the olive oil in a food processor and process until broken down. Scrape down the sides of the food processor if needed. With the processor running, slowly pour in oil and blend until smooth.
  • Let steaks rest for 5 mins then top with pesto and enjoy!
