Delicious!! I too had to cook the steaks a little longer, about 7 minutes on each side- we like ours a little more done in the middle. I served this with couscous and green beans. It was so easy to make, I definitely recommend!

This recipe cooks the steaks to medium-rare doneness. Lower the temperature and increase cook time for more well-done steaks.
