    LAURIE's Note:

    I love steak (esp on the grill)and am always on the look out for recipes. This comes off a BBQ/grilling website and is very good. The pesto adds a nice topping flavor to the grilled steaks. I have done these on the countertop grill and on the campfire also with no change.

    1. 1
      To make the pesto: In a medium skillet over medium heat, spread the pine nuts in a single layer and cook until lightly browned and toasted, about 5 minutes, stirring occasionally.
    2. 2
      Put the nuts in a food processor.
    3. 3
      Add all the remaining pesto ingredients except the oil.
    4. 4
      Pulse to create a coarse cornmeal consistency.
    5. 5
      Slowly add the oil andpulse until it is incorporated.
    6. 6
      For a slightly looser consistency, add 1 to 2 tablespoons warm water as you pulse.
    7. 7
      The finished pesto should have all the ingredients blended but not pureed.
    8. 8
      Season the steaks with salt and pepper on both sides, pressing the seasonings into the meat.
    9. 9
      Lightly brush or spray each side with the oil.
    10. 10
      Allow the steaks to stand at room temperature for 20 to 30 minutes before grilling.
    11. 11
      Grill over Direct Medium heat until cooked to desired doneness, 8 to 10 minutes for medium rare, turning once or twice (if flare-ups occur, move the steaks temporarily over Indirect Medium heat). Remove the steaks from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes.
    12. 12
      Serve each steak with a generous dollop of pesto on top.

      DH and I served this last night for dinner when we had company over. It was absolutely delicious! I loved it, and my guests remarked several times how good they thought it was. We grilled the steaks on the BBQ and I thought the pesto sauce was a perfect pairing. I will be making this recipe many, many times in the future. Thank you so much for posting.
