Total Recipe Time: 25 to 30 minutes
Makes 4 servings
4 beef Ranch Steaks, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 5 ounces each)
1/2 cup finely chopped seeded cucumber
1/4 cup prepared ranch dressing
1 tablespoon garlic-pepper seasoning
1 small tomato, seeded, diced (optional)
|1.||Combine cucumber and dressing in small bowl. Set aside.|
|2.||Press garlic-pepper seasoning evenly onto beef steaks. Place steaks on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 8 to 11 minutes (over medium on preheated gas grill, times remain the same) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally.
|3.||Serve steaks with cucumber sauce. Garnish with tomato, if desired.|
Cook's Tip: To easily seed a cucumber, cut it lengthwise in half and use the tip of a teaspoon to scrape out the seeds. European or English greenhouse-grown cucumbers, now available in many supermarkets, are virtually seedless.
