All-American Grilled Steak

Yield 6 servings (serving size: 3 ounces)
There's no need to use one of the low-carb ketchups in this marinade. One-fourth cup regular ketchup has 14 grams of carbohydrate, which means that ketchup contributes about 2 grams of carbohydrate per serving in this recipe. The sweetness of the ketchup is balanced by the dry wine, vinegar, and mustard.

Ingredients

  • 1 cup dry red wine
  • 1/4 cup ketchup
  • 3 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 (1 1/2-pound) lean boneless top round steak (about 1 1/2 inches thick)
  • Cooking spray
