Summertime is truly in full swing around here. We have a fair mix of super hot days and downpours and have been trying to get out and about as much as we can before the baby arrives in August. We have had fun days at an amusement park, playgrounds, and even got in a quick weekend trip to an indoor water park. It has been great so far, but my energy is really starting to wear down as I get bigger and the weather gets warmer.
The hotter it gets, the less I want to cook indoors, so the grill is my best friend. This isn’t new for us though, we are big grillers and always look forward to this season when we can cook outdoors as much as possible. Giant Eagle is not only my favorite grocery store, but it is definitely a great place to look for all your grilling essentials.
I picked up some beautiful Market District Certified Angus Beef T-Bone steaks last week and knew they would be perfect on the grill. Giant Eagle has the best meat department and I try to buy all of our meat products there. I love that they have butchers on hand that will help you pick out something or cut something special for you!
I love t-bones because they are so low maintenance. They don’t require hours of marinating or really any special treatment. They are already so tender and flavorful that they barely require any prep work. They are also so big that I only need to make two to feed our hungry family of three. My daughter has really been digging t-bones so we have had them twice in the last week! I throw them in a super quick half an hour marinade and then we cook on the grill for 10 minutes. Easy and quick!
Our garden is bursting with fresh herbs so I decided to mix up some of them with Hellmann’s Mayonnaise to make a fast aioli. I would never have though of putting a mayonnaise based sauce on a steak, but we had it with a meal recently and it was so good! A true aioli is an emulsified blend of oils and eggs, beginning with a base of mortared garlic, but honestly, by using good mayonnaise and adding in some nice olive oil, you get a very similar flavor, with half the whisking!
We got everything we needed for this meal at Giant Eagle. Ryan went grocery shopping with me (this is a big event people, he NEVER goes shopping with me) and he picked up some Lipton’s Ready to Drink Diet Green Citrus Tea. I am not the biggest green tea fan, but thought it was really good and he really loved it! We finished our meal with some Breyer’s Ice Cream. It felt like a super fancy meal, but total prep time was less than 15 minutes and cook time was around 10! Perfect for warm summer nights when you rather be relaxing than cooking! I served a simple arugula salad on toast on the side.
You need to try these easy Marinated T-Bone Steaks with Garlic and Herb Aioli before grilling season passes us by! You will feel like you are at a fancy steakhouse!
Marinated T- Bone Steaks with Garlic and Herb Aioli
- For the marinade:
- 1/4 cup olive oil
- 2 tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
- 2 tbsp. prepared steak sauce any kind you like
- 1 tbsp. soy sauce
- 1 tbsp. balsamic vinegar
- 2 large Market District Certified Angus Beef T-Bones about 1 inch thick
- For the aioli:
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- 3 tbsp. Hellmann's Mayonnaise
- 2 tbsp. extra virgin olive oil
- 2 tbsp. of chopped fresh herbs I used basil, parsley, and rosemary
Mix all the marinade ingredients together and then place together with the steaks in sealed bag. Put in the fridge for half an hour before cooking.
Meanwhile, in a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients for the aioli until the oil is incorporated into the mayonnaise. Refrigerate until serving.
When ready to cook, preheat grill to medium high heat. Remove steaks from the fridge. A room temperature steak cooks better.
Remove steaks from marinade and place on the grill. Cook for 6 minutes on on side and 4 minutes on the other for just shy of medium well. Adjust cooking time to your desired temperature. You can use a meat thermometer to check.
Remove from the grill and cover with foil. Let sit for at least 5-8 minutes to let the juices redistribute. Top with prepared aioli and enjoy!
