Chipotle salsa - both a key ingredient in the marinade and a condiment for the meat and vegetables - has a smokier, more full-bodied flavor than regular tomato salsa. Marinating the vegetables in a zip-top plastic bag eliminates cleanup - you can just throw the bag away. Because the steak has to marinate from four hours to overnight in order to tenderize and absorb flavor, you'll need to start this recipe ahead of time.

Chile-Spiced Tenderloin Steaks Menu
The ancho chile powder spiced marinade quickly soaks into these tenderloin cuts. A cool tomato and corn salad balances out the steak's spicy heat, and a flour tortilla is ready to sop up any leftover marinade.
Flank steak skewers lightened with lemon zest and a lemon dipping sauce are a tasty and easy-to-eat menu item for this outdoor party. Round out the light but filling party spread with mint bellinis, chilled shrimp with remoulade sauce, and a variety of other pick-up foods to satisfy midsummer guests.

Quick Steak Salad Dinner
Juicy beef tenderloin over fresh watercress, topped with tangy homemade caper vinaigrette, creates a fresh and satisfying entrée. Round out the meal with fresh vegetables and a slice of mozzarella and basil toast. Offer fresh fruit for dessert.
Dinnertime doesn't get much better than a simple steak and potatoes meal. Begin with a cool iceberg wedge drizzled with blue cheese dressing, then move on to the steak and potatoes. To save time, check the dairy section of the supermarket for prepared mashed potatoes.
Even if you are not roughing it overnight in a tent, this savory menu will be just as spectacular eaten in the comfort of your own backyard. The popular Food Network star Guy Fieri created this savory feast around an Argentinean-influenced gaucho steak entrée.
Invite company over for this extravagant meal prepared over the open flame. The courses are all creations of "grill warriors"—food editors who have spent plenty of time over their grills. We recommend saving room for the grilled pineapple satays with coconut-caramel sauce.
