5 plus stars for the tomato salad, especially after sitting overnight!! I used grape tomatoes, as that is all I could find. I used sirloin instead of flat iron steaks....think maybe the flat irons would be more tender? I grilled on a charcoal grill. This is a delicious recipe that comes together very quickly. Softening the butter is what took the longest! I halved the amount of anchovy paste, and I'm glad I did....otherwise it would have been too salty for me. Thanks for sharing! Made for Photo Tag.
This was really fantastic. I am not an anchovy fan, but I followed the recipe faithfully (except I used grape tomatoes instead of cherry). The anchovy butter was actually a nice touch, and not overpowering. There ended up being a lot of tomato salad, which got eaten up anyway. This was pretty simple, as well. I will be making this again. Thanks for posting. Made for Newest Zaar Tag Game.
