Hello, grilling season. One of my favorite times of year is when the weather is nice enough to cook and then dine outside. The house stays (relatively) clean, and dinner seems to be suddenly about so much more than just nourishing our bodies.
Grilling is a great way to get outside and take care of the things that need to be taken care of, let the kids run in the grass, have friends over, whatever, and with Memorial Day and Father’s Day fast approaching, I thought you might need a bit of a grill brainstorm. Here are 10 steak recipes to get you started on planning those grilling menus. Check back, because ‘ll be following with recipes for pork, chicken, and vegetables on the grill as well!
The Basic 1 of 10Basic is best. Here's how to cook a steak. It's as simple as this, and there's no pomp and circumstance involved…but I won't judge if you bring gorgonzola butter.

Buttered 2 of 10Take a good steak and make it pop with a few homemade condiments. Put down the A1 sauce, and instead go with a few bourbon caramelized onions and a blue cheese compound butter to serve with that piece of meat.

Bacon-Wrapped 3 of 10No steak list would be complete without a mention of these bacon-wrapped beauties. Steak and bacon are meant to go together. They seek each other out and demand to be included in the mix.

Fajitas 4 of 10Throw a few onions and peppers up next to your steak and then stuff them together into a flour tortilla for a steak fajita feast from the grill.
Herbed and Zested 5 of 10Forget the butters and the heavy sauce, this steak is lightly grilled and then topped with a fresh parsley and orange zest gremolata, giving a completely new feel to a steak dinner.

On-a-Stick 7 of 10Putting steak on a stick is an obvious choice, and these steak bites are marinated before hitting the skewer. Grilled and served on the same stick, they're great for picnics or places where using a knife to cut your steak may be difficult.

Asian Style 9 of 10Not your average steak cut, this one requires a bit of a marinade, but it's worth the time letting it soak. A ginger-based marinade and brown sugar will give this steak a sweet flavor.

Thai Spice 10 of 10Slightly spicy from the sriracha addition, this steak is cooked medium and thinly sliced. Big and little mouths alike gobbled this up without a sound, just appreciating the juicy steak and brilliant flavors that the curry brought to the table.
