Time: about 60 to 90 minutes, including time to marinate the steak.
Tools needed: measuring spoons, measuring cup, baking dish, grill or grill pan.
Instructions: In medium baking dish, mix soy sauce, apple sauce, apple cider vinegar, Worcestershire sauce, Dijon mustard, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Marinate steak, covered, in the refrigerator,for 30 – 60 minutes, flipping occasionally. Heat grill to high and season with oil. Remove steak from marinade and let excess marinade drip off. Transfer marinade to saucepan. Over low heat, bring to a simmer until marinade is reduced by half. Sear steaks on the grill, covered for 6 minutes. Turn, brush with glaze the reduced glaze, and grill another 6 minutes covered, for medium rare, longer for more medium well to well done.
Remove steak from grill and let rest 5-10 min before slicing.
Drizzle remaining marinade on top. Serve over your favorite fresh summer salad dressed with olive oil and lemon juice, and a fantastic dessert to follow it up is Pop Grilled Peaches!
Why grill? Grilling food is a healthy cooking method. Using minimal amounts of fat, grilling imparts flavor to cooked meats, veggies, and fruits. If you are having trouble with small pieces falling through the grill, consider using a grill basket (available here) or skewers to keep slippery fruits and veggies contained.
