Grilled Flank Steak and Puttanesca SaladAndrea Buckett Cooks created this delicious steak recipe which incorporates all the flavours we love about "puttanesca" into a summer fresh salad. The steak is grilled with only salt and pepper then gets a “reverse rub” after it comes off the grill. This means the flavours of the rub get to shine and aren’t dimmed by charring on the BBQ. The flank steak doesn’t need to be marinated to be tender. You simply have to cut it in thin slices against the grain. This is a brilliant recipe chocked-full of flavour and perfect to feed a crowd.

Brazilian Grilled Picanha with Fresh SaladThe beauty of this famous Brazilian grilled steak dish is its simplicity…it’s all about the beef! No fancy marinades or add-ons define picanha, but this top sirloin cap is lean, tender, and has a deep beef flavor which is heightened by grilling over high heat, charcoal if possible.

To complement the slices of grilled picanha, try this fresh, colouful vegetable salad. In summer, field vegetables are at their tastiest, but this salad has been designed to be just as delicious using Canadian hothouse gems, grown year-round.

Beef Goi Cuon Salad

Chef Anna Olson developed this refreshing salad as inspired by the salad rolls that often start a Vietnamese meal.  Rice noodles are tossed with crunchy, colourful vegetables and peanut ginger dressing. The salad is made more substantial as the main meal by adding slow-simmered beef blade pot roast.  Bonus: Save the broth used to cook the pot roast to enjoy as the starter for a Pho soup.

Seared Beef Carpaccio-Style with Pickled Shallots, Veg and Chimichurri SauceRare slivers of beef are served with roasted potato coins (sweet potato or not), chimichurri sauce and mixed greens topped with pickled shallots to finish the dish. Although the recipe is easy, there are several components to the dish, so think about making the pickled shallots, sauce and dressing for the greens ahead. Don't stress if you end up with leftover sauce or shallots as these are terrific condiments you can use for later meals. Try the pickled shallots to dress sandwiches, burgers or salads. Extra chimichurri sauce, is great with scrambled eggs, quiche, cheese or burgers or as a spread for toasted pita.
