This was really good. I added an extra tbsp of olive oil and used a little less black pepper and added some red pepper flakes. I also marinated the steak for about 30 min before grilling. It was very tender.

I'm sorry, but this had no flavor. This would probably be good combined with a marinade, but alone it's pretty bland.

This steak definitely has to marinate for several hours before it would be tender. I also used some canadian steak seasoning and paprika for flavor. This is also good for chuck steak. When I grill these types of steaks I cook them only to medium rare, otherwise they tend to be tough. This is a great low carb and lower price steak that will taste like the high priced steak if it's treated right. We had no problem with it and the flavor was delicious.

This is a great recipe, I put the olive oil, garlic and pepper (I add some salt to that mixture) on a couple of hours before grilling. I serve the steaks with an herbed butter poured over them (melted butter, fresh basil, fresh thyme)

Way to much pepper but other than that the flavor was amazing! I added a 1/2 cup soy sauce, 2 more cloves of garlic, 1 tsp of garlic power, 1 tsp of onion powder, and 2 sliced onions. I marinated the steak for 6 hours. This recipe is very very delicious. Next time I will only add a 1/2 tsp of pepper. Thanks!

A fast easy recipe to use in the hot weather if you live anyplace but the deep south. Here we Bar b que/grill all year round. This for us is a good alternative to using a stove and heating up the house. It is fast, and I added vegetable medly of bell pepper, onion, carrots, and fresh green beans, grilled at the same time, on the grill. For the medley prepare fresh veggies, place on foil or on a skewer, Either brush a mixture of olive oil, garlic and onion powder, salt and pepper to taste, or drizzle over if using a foil dish, and grill till done to taste.

I thought this was very bland. I was expecting a lot more flavor. Next time I will try a marinade. Thankfully it did no harm to the steaks but I was really looking forward to a garlicky flavor. I used sirloin tip steak for this recipe.

This was good. I did marinate the meat for about 4 hours before grilling. Didn't think it would be tender if I didn't. Thanks for the post.
