Peppercorn Steak Recipe

It's summertime and the grilling is easy! July’s National Grilling Month is the perfect opportunity to treat your friends and family to some delicious (but rather unhealthy) food from the grill. When most people think of a cookout, they have dreams of hot dogs, hamburgers, creamy potato salad and chips.

According to a survey from Medifast, over half of the participants just sit and eat at a BBQ rather than move around and partake in physical activity…So why not add some healthy, light and delicious meals to the menu to make up for the lack in cardiovascular activity? To help combat the BBQ weight gain, Medifast has created a few grilling recipes perfect to help celebrate National Grilling Month while keeping you slim and trim.

Peppercorn Steak Recipe

Prep time: 15 minutes Cooking time: 14 minutes Yield: 1 serving

7 oz flank steak
¼ tsp whole peppercorns
1/8 tsp kosher salt
½ tsp dry mustard
¼ tsp garlic powder
¼ tsp dried thyme
½ cup mushrooms, sliced thin
½ cup green bell peppers, chopped

Mix the peppercorn, salt, mustard, garlic powder, and thyme. Rub evenly over steak. Let stand for 10 minutes. Heat a non-stick grill pan over medium heat. Grill steak five to seven minutes on each side, until steak is desired doneness. Grill mushrooms and green peppers until tender; serve alongside steak.
