Grilled Tuscan Steak
Recipe: Grilled Tuscan Steak


  • 3 large garlic cloves
  • 1 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons freshly squeezed lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon of paprika*
  • 3 tablespoons fresh oregano leaves, washed
  • 1 1/2 packed cups washed fresh parsley
  • 2 1/2 pounds flat iron, skirt or flank steak
  • 1 large heirloom tomato, diced (optional garnish)


  1. In a food processor or blender, pulse garlic. Add olive oil, lemon juice, vinegar, paprika, parsley and oregano. Pulse until well-blended but not puréed. Season to taste with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper. You should have approximately 1 and 1/2 cups marinade.
  2. Place half of the marinade in a large resealable plastic bag or shallow dish. Reserve remaining to sauce the cooked beef. Marinate beef 12-18 hours, turning once, refrigerated.
  3. Allow meat to come to room temperature and preheat charcoal or gas grill to high heat. Brush off excess marinade, season meat with kosher salt and freshly ground pepper, and place on oiled grill grate. Grill 6-10 minutes on each side (internal temperature of 135 degrees for medium rare steak), depending on heat of the grill and thickness of the beef.
  4. Remove the steaks from the grill. Let sit 5-10 minutes then slice against the grain with a very sharp knife. Drizzle reserved sauce over sliced steak. serve garnished with diced tomato, if using.
