Barbecued Steak

It’s not really summer without a Steak on the Grill.

I would add that there also has to be Caesar Salad, Caprese Salad, and Ham & Melon, but those things all have to wait for the potager.

As to the potager – it’s starting to look like a real veggie patch instead of the barren plot it’s been. Photos follow the recipe.

Yes, we like our steak rare….

Get any steak suitable for your budget and for grilling.  If you slice the steak, at an angle, even a tougher cut is delicious – and they usually have more flavor!

  • Method: Grilling


  • 16oz (480gr) sirloin or top round 
  • 2 tbs ketchup
  • 1 tbs Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbs Balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp dried oregano
  • 2 tbs olive oil


  • Combine ketchup, Worcestershire, vinegar, oil, garlic and oregano. 
  • Spoon on both sides of steak and allow to marinate for 15 – 30 minutes. 
  • Cook steak on barbecue grill over direct heat for 5 – 9 minutes per side – or until done – 140F (60C) for rare.  
  • Use meat thermometer, thumb test, or, as last resort, slice into center and look.
  • When done, remove from heat and let rest for 5 minutes. 
  • Slice at an angle about 1/2 inch thick (1.25cm) and serve. 


You should have an instant read thermometer. I use it for everything from cakes to steaks to the T-Day turkey.
This can also be cooked under broiler – start with 7 minutes per side.

Barbecued Steak

Prefer Filet Mignon with Glazed Mushrooms?

It was close, but some of the sweet corn was ‘knee-high by the 4th of July’. We are now hopeful of at least a small harvest.

Half of the tomatoes are doing well. The other half have issues. The beans are starting to look like they might be productive. In talking to the neighbors I am not the only one with a weird, worrisome potager this summer.

Some of the winter squash are stretching out their vines and even thinking about flowering.

Others still resemble seedlings.

The Romaine lettuce is doing great! Caesar Salad this weekend!!!

I could never be a farmer… the stress!!!!

  1. I know, it’s the 17th and I am so far behind…

    We picked three cukes yesterday. They’re not overly big, but big enough, and I have dozens of thumb sized that are coming on so the garden is starting. The green bean plants are…plants. That’s all. The pepper plants are starting to produce peppers so pickled peppers are on the way. The tomato plants have really started growing and four out of the six have tiny tomatoes on them! And my heirloom tomato plant that has been abused and ravaged and that I thought would never make it is still hanging in there. It has flowers on it so maybe I’ll end up with at least one tomato from it. Who knows? We’ve had so, so much rain! I’m sure that’s got something to do with it.
