Garlicky Steak and Asparagus
Recipe courtesy: Better Homes and Gardens
Makes 2 servings
Prep: 15 minutes
Grill: 3 to 4 minutes


1  12- to 14-oz. boneless
beef top loin (strip) steak, cut about 3/4 inch thick 
1  or 2 large cloves garlic, coarsely chopped
1/2  tsp. cracked or coarsely ground black pepper
1/4  tsp. salt
8  to 10 thin asparagus spears, trimmed (6 oz.)
2  tsp. garlic-flavored olive oil or
olive oil
1/2  cup
beef broth
1  Tbsp. dry white wine
1/4  tsp. Dijon-style


1. Rub the steak on both sides with a mixture of the garlic, pepper, and salt, pressing in the mixture with your fingers. Place the asparagus in a shallow dish and drizzle with the oil. For sauce, in a medium skillet stir together the broth and wine. Cook over high heat for 4 to 5 minutes or until mixture is reduced to 1/4 cup. Whisk in mustard; keep warm. 

2. Preheat an indoor electric grill on high setting, if available. Place steak on the grill rack. If using a covered grill, close lid. Grill until steak is desired doneness. (For a covered grill, allow 3 to 4 minutes for medium rare or 5 to 7 minutes for medium. For an uncovered grill, allow 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare or 8 to 10 minutes for medium, turning steak once.) If space allows, add asparagus to covered grill for the last 2 to 3 minutes or for uncovered grill the last 4 to 5 minutes of grilling. Cook asparagus until crisp-tender.* 

3. Spoon sauce on serving plate. Cut steak in half crosswise. Serve steak halves atop sauce with asparagus on top. Makes 2 servings. 

*Note: The asparagus cooking time will vary with the size of asparagus. Also, if there is no room on the grill, the asparagus can be grilled after the steak. 

Conventional Method: Prepare as above through Step 1. Place steak on the unheated rack of a broiler pan. Broil 3 to 4 inches from the heat for 8 to 10 minutes for medium rare or 10 to 12 minutes for medium, turning once and adding asparagus to the rack of the broiler pan the last 2 minutes of broiling. Serve as directed above.
