    Grilled Steak With Pepper Relish

    Here, we toss colorful bell peppers in a balsamic-herb vinaigrette and grill them in a foil packet at the same time as the steak. Serve with corn on the cob.


    • 3 small red, yellow and/or orange bell peppers, sliced
    • 1 small onion, halved and sliced
    • 2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
    • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
    • 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed
    • 1 tablespoon finely chopped fresh thyme, or 1 teaspoon dried, divided
    • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
    • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided
    • 1 pound sirloin steak, or strip steak (1-1 1/4 inches thick), trimmed and cut into 4 portions
    • 1 teaspoon garlic powder


    Step 1
    Preheat grill to medium.
    Step 2
    Combine bell peppers, onion, vinegar, oil, capers, 2 teaspoons fresh thyme (or 3/4 teaspoon dried) and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl.
    Step 3
    Stack two 30-inch-long pieces of foil. Arrange the pepper mixture on one half and fold the foil. Tightly seal the packet by crimping and folding the edges together.
    Step 4
    Sprinkle both sides of steak with garlic powder, the remaining thyme and 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper.
    Step 5
    Oil the grill rack. Place the steak and foil packet on the grill. Grill the steak about 4 minutes per side for medium-rare, 5 minutes per side for medium. Grill the packet until the vegetables are tender, 10 to 12 minutes. 
    Step 6
    Let the steak rest for 5 minutes. Serve the steak with the peppers.
