Grilled Minute Steaks on an Indoor Grill

My husband likes these minute steaks from our butcher shop that are so tender you don’t need a knife to cut them.  I like grilling them on my George Foreman indoor grill in a flash!  Here are a couple of recipes I use…they can all be prepared in a grill pan or on your outdoor grill; it takes about the listed time on each side if prepared that way.                     
Sherry and Ginger Grilled Minute Steaks for 2
  8        ounces  minute steak
  2        Tablespoons  Sherry -- or rice vinegar or lemon juice
  1         Tablespoon  Olive Oil
  2          Teaspoons  grated fresh ginger or ginger paste from a tube
  2          Teaspoons  Teriyaki Sauce -- or soy sauce
  2          Teaspoons  sesame oil
  2          Teaspoons  garlic -- minced
Combine all ingredients in a self-sealing plastic bag; seal bag and refrigerate 2-24 hours.
Remove tenderloins from marinade; discarding marinade.  Bring to room temperature 15-20 minutes.
Meanwhile, preheat a George Foreman indoor grill 5-6 minutes.
Place drained minute steaks on grill, cover and cook 4-5 minutes until 145-150° for medium rare.

I like to know what’s in my seasoning salt mixtures so celiacs like Myrna can eat them.  Here’s our favorite, simple recipe that we use a lot.  The seasoning is excellent with eggs, rice, potatoes, meats and poultry.  I keep it on hand.

Sue’s Seasoning Salt on Minute Steaks
Seasoning Salt
  1         tablespoon  salt
  1         tablespoon  onion powder
  1         tablespoon  garlic powder
  1         tablespoon  paprika (we use smoked paprika)
  1         tablespoon  mustard powder
  1           teaspoon  thyme
  1           teaspoon  pepper
     1/2      teaspoon  celery seed
1/2          pound  Minute Steaks, cut into 2 pieces

Stir up ingredients very thoroughly in a 1 cup glass measuring cup.  Pour into a spice shaker or sprinkle with your fingers over both sides of your steak.
Let your steak sit, covered, on the counter 15-20 minutes before grilling, or refrigerated 2-3 hours or overnight after seasoning.  Bring to room temperature if refrigerated, about 15-20 minutes before grilling.
In George Foreman indoor grill, grill about 4-5 minutes for ¾” to 1” minute steaks until 145-150° for medium rare.

To make these meals really fast, I heated up cooked brown /wild rice mixture from the freezer or microwaved a baked potato and served them with frozen vegetables prettied up with frozen chopped garden peppers or frozen, premade caramelized onions, also from the freezer.

  1. This seasoning salt is so good. Just the right amount of Paprika which I am not a fan of but this recipe balances it out well. Also nothing in it I can't eat which is great.


Hi...we'd love to hear from you.
