When it is too hot to cook inside, keep the house cool by preparing your entire meal on the grill. Serve with a leafy green salad for a delicious summer supper.
|1-1/2 lb||trimmed, 1-inch (5 cm) thick, top sirloin steaks, about 2||750 g|
|1/4 cup||honey mustard||50 mL|
|3||cloves garlic, minced||3|
|1 tbsp||dried oregano||15 mL|
|1 tsp||each paprika, salt and pepper||5 mL|
|4 tsp||hot pepper sauce (to taste)||20 mL|
|3 tbsp||canola oil (divided)||45 mL|
|1 cup||each chopped onion, green pepper and celery||250 mL|
|1 cup||Tex Farm long grain white rice
or Tex Farm long grain brown rice
|1-1/2 cups||each chicken broth and seeded, diced tomato||375 mL|
|1/2 cup||white wine||125 mL|
|1/2 cup||chopped green onion||125 mL|
|2 tbsp||finely chopped green olives (optional)||30 mL|
Steak: Place steak on a plate. In a small bowl, blend honey mustard with garlic, oregano, paprika, salt and pepper. Divide mustard mixture in half. Stir the hot pepper sauce and 1 tbsp (15 mL) of the oil into one portion; rub evenly over the steak. Reserve steak at room temperature for 15 minutes.
Turn one burner on the grill to medium-high, one to medium setting*. Place a foil lasagna pan over the medium burner. Add remaining oil, onion, green pepper and celery to the foil pan. Cook, stirring often, for about 5 minutes. Add rice and remaining mustard mixture; stir to coat each grain of rice.
Stir in chicken broth, tomato, white wine and bay leaves. Cover pan with a baking sheet (to act as a lid). Close BBQ lid and cook for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove pan from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes. Stir in the green onion and olives (if using). Discard bay leaves. Fluff rice with a fork and season with additional hot sauce to taste.
Meanwhile, grill steak over the medium-high burner for 6 to 8 minutes per side or until cooked to preferred doneness. Rest for 5 minutes. Slice steak thinly across the grain. Arrange the steak decoratively over the rice. Serve with lemon wedges.
Makes 6 servings.
*Note: If your barbecue cannot accommodate grilling both the rice and steak at the same time, prepare the rice first and let it rest while the steak cooks.
Tip:Prepare the rice indoors by proceeding as directed in a large skillet set over medium heat instead of the foil lasagna pan. Use a heavy skillet or grill pan to cook the steak over medium-high heat.
