There's enough flavor in these steaks to allow the side dish to be simple. So consider serving them with baked potatoes, rice pilaf or another plain vegetable and salad. The meal has always gone over big when I've fixed it for my husband and friends helping out with his latest home construction project. David and I have a daughter, 3. Her new brother or sister is due any day! -Elaine Anderson, Aliquippa, Pennsylvania

"If I make this again, I think I'd also add a bit of garlic. We had a change of plans and the steak marinated for 24 hours more than was planned, which led to a bit of an overly salty steak, but the flavor was pretty good."

"Tried this one tonight with some rice, gingered snap peas and carrots, and homemade Hawaiian bread on the side,turned out really well. Only change I would make is to add just a touch of garlic, but that's just personal taste."

"This is the way I usually prepare our steaks -- it's so yummy! Note: over the years, I have omitted the oil because it causes flare-ups on the grill. -Lori in WI."
