Mediterranean Eye Round Steaks

Total Recipe Time: 30 to 60 minutes
Marinade Time: 6 hours or overnight

2 beef eye round steaks, cut 1 inch thick (about 8 ounces each)
1 jar (6 ounces) marinated quartered artichoke hearts
1/4 cup chopped roasted red pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh basil
3 tablespoons Dijon-style mustard
Salt and pepper



Drain artichokes, reserving liquid. Chop artichokes and combine with roasted red pepper and basil in small bowl; cover and refrigerate.


Combine reserved artichoke liquid and Dijon mustard in small bowl. Place beef steaks and mustard mixture in food-safe plastic bag; turn steaks to coat. Close bag securely and marinate in refrigerator 6 hours or as long as overnight.


Remove steaks from marinade; discard marinade. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 13 to 15 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 17 to 19 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) doneness, turning occasionally. (Do not overcook.)


Carve steaks into thin slices. Season with salt and pepper, as desired. Serve with artichoke mixture.

Makes 2 to 4 servings

Cook's Tip:
   One teaspoon dried basil leaves can be substituted for fresh.
