Italian-Style Grilled Steak

recipe
Drizzling the cooked steak with olive oil is a traditional finishing touch, so this dish calls for your best-quality oil. Freeze the beef for 10 to 15 minutes to make it easier to slice. Garnish with fresh rosemary or thyme sprigs.

Yield:

4 servings (serving size: 3 ounces steak, 1 cup pasta, and 1 teaspoon oil)
