  • For the Spicy Lemon Pesto:
  • 1/3 cup/80 mL prepared basil pesto sauce
  • 1 tablespoon/15 mL fresh lemon juice
  • Optional: 1 teaspoon/5 mL freshly grated lemon peel
  • 1/2 teaspoon/2.5 mL crushed red pepper
  • 3 large cloves garlic (minced)
  • Salt to taste

How to Make It

1. Combine Spicy Lemon Pesto ingredients in small bowl. Set aside.

2. Press garlic evenly onto beef steaks. Place steaks on grill over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 10 to 14 minutes for medium-rare to medium doneness, turning once. Season with salt, as desired. Top steaks with pesto. Garnish with lemon peel, if desired.
