WOW! Made these for dinner last night and they were great. Used NY Strip (personal preference) and followed another reviewer's suggestion and marinated them in some of the pesto. Thanks for the great recipe!

We made this and were pleasantly surprised! We don't typically like pesto but I have to admit, it was very good AND very quick and easy to make! Since it was still cold out, we made it on the stove and used flank steak instead of the flat iron. Worked great with the flank steak.

Perfect pesto! For anyone worried about or having trouble with pesto falling off or burning on their steaks, I marinated my steaks in about 2T pesto (don't worry, you'll have plenty for topping) loosened with a splash of lemon and olive oil. You can shake the excess off - or not, I didn't - when you're ready to grill. Awesome. Thanks for the recipe!!!

As we thought, most of the outer ingredients fell off on the grill, plus it flamed up a bit. The only flavor that stood out (for us) was the garlic. 4 minutes per side wasn't long enough & our steak was pretty thin. I don't think we'll be doing this one again.

Awesome! A hit with everyone (I left the sauce off of the kid's steaks.) The lemon and pepper flakes are a great addition to the pesto. I had enough left over that I will serve it with pasta another day. Thank you! A keeper.

Very nice twist on pesto! Next time I think I will try it with a dash of chili oil instead of the crushed red pepper flakes. I think it might mix in a little better.

This was excellent! The only changes I made was to add an extra clove of garlic to the pesto and cut the lemon juice to 2 tsp because I didn't want it to be too tart. The garlic rubbed on the meat didn't do much good; it burned off while the meat was cooking, but that's a small quibble. My husband and I loved this. I served it with sliced tomatoes and roasted cauliflower. Thanks for the recipe, desi!
