My friend Linda who also has a  Recipe Website made us a delicious Fillet Steak Dinner the other evening. The Fillet steaks had been rubbed with the three ingredients below for a few hours before BBQ’ing on a gas grill and it was the best steak I have truly ever had.

For the Rub

  • Lemon Pepper
  • Pressed Garlic
  • Olive Oil
  1. Sprinkle on the lemon pepper
  2. Press on the crushed garlic
  3. Rub on the olive oil
  4. Cover and refrigerate for a few hours, but remove an hour or so before BBQ’ing to bring to room temperature.
  5. Grill
  6. Rest then slice and arrange on a serving platter
Linda served it with sauted Shitake mushrooms, runner beans, Baked Potatoes (Potatoe filling mashed with sour cream and chives and topped with melted cheese) and a fabulous garden salad.
