    Direct grilled minute steak with pineapple wedges

    Here’s a recipe that uses direct grilling for once. I do a lot of low n’ slow, and wanted to do a quick grill this time, and decided to do a fresh summer pasta. To add flavor to the meat, I mixed together a herb butter. Minute steaks are super thin slices from the inside rear leg of a cow.

    Butter ingredients
    • 2 oz butter
    • 2 sundried tomatoes (2 pieces in oil)
    • 2 anchovies (for saltiness)
    • a small bunch of parsley
    Chop the tomatoes, anchovies and parsley well. Mix well with the butter using a fork. Let it rest in the fridge until you need it. I rolled it up to a cylinder, so it would be easy to slice later.

    I fired up the grill, getting it real hot for searing only. I had it running at 400° F. First I put on the pineapple wedges (brushed with maple syrup), as I figured they needed the most time, and gave them a nice char. I then brushed the steaks with Dijon mustard on both sides, put them on the grate.

    When the steaks are all done (shouldn’t take any more than a few minutes), I placed them on a piece of aluminum foil and layered them with a piece of the butter between each, then wrapping it all up. I let it rest for a few minutes, so the butter melted and distributed evenly.

    I served it all with fresh pasta (pappardelle), and slices of Chèvre (goat’s cheese), and more of the herb butter. It turned out real nice, I must say, and it was fun to do a quick cook for once.

    And the plate, ready to serve

    You're making me hungry, Henrik! Thanks for posting the great photos and the recipe.



      I agree! That is a beautiful thing, Henrik... thanks!


        Thanks guys, sometimes you just wannna eat, and not be bothered with waiting 5-7 hours. This was one of those days. I gotta say; that resting butter really took it to the next level. On the other hand, by adding butter, how could you go wrong?


          Haha, so true, everything is better with butter. Which explains my current physique. Great looking cook Henrik. Sometimes you just gotta go hot and fast. Nice post brother.



            Good thing I "gots" a plate of food in front of me.

            The Cool Kettle With The Hinged Hood We Always Wanted

            Napoleon’s 22″ Pro Cart Charcoal Kettle Grill puts a few spins on the familiar kettle design. In fact, the hinged lid with a handle on the front, spins in a rotary motion 180 degrees. It’s hard to beat a Weber kettle, but Napoleon holds its own and adds some unique features to make the 22″ Pro Cart a viable alternative.
