This is a recipe I developed. We love beef, and grilling is an easy way to add variety to our meals. My mom and grandma taught me how to cook. I've entered several cooking competitions and have won some awards.

Directions

  1. With a sharp knife, make five lengthwise cuts three-fourths of the way through the steak. Combine salt, pepper and parsley; rub over steak.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the basil, onion, garlic, rosemary and thyme. Stuff into pockets in steak. Using heavy-duty string, tie the steak at 2-in. intervals, closing the pockets. Drizzle with oil.
  3. Grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 35-45 minutes or until the meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Cover and let stand for 5-10 minutes. Remove string before slicing. Yield: 6-8 servings.
Editor's Note: Steak can also be baked, uncovered, at 400° for 45 minutes or until meat reaches desired doneness.
