Simply seasoned grilled beef tenderloin steak served with a medley of grilled summer squash and tomatoes makes an ideal dish for summer entertaining.

How to Make It

Step 1

Prepare grill or broiler.

Step 2

Sprinkle steaks with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper.

Step 3

Combine 1/4 teaspoon salt, 1/4 teaspoon pepper, zucchini, and next 5 ingredients (zucchini through garlic) in a large zip-top plastic bag. Seal and shake to coat.

Step 4

Place the tenderloin steaks on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook for 4 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Place the zucchini and yellow squash on grill rack or broiler pan coated with cooking spray; cook 3 minutes on each side or until tender. Place the tomato and onions on grill rack or broiler pan; cook 2 minutes or just until tender.

Step 5

Coarsely chop the vegetables, and place in a bowl. Add pesto; stir gently. Serve with steaks. Garnish with oregano, if desired.

Thought the steak might taste a little bland so I sprinkled mine with steak seasoning. Made the warm vegetable salad according to the recipe and thought it was delicious!

The taste of pesto overwhelmed the veggies. I also used the broiler to prepare the veggies and just didn't care for the results.
