    Serves: 2 

    • 2 (285g) beef sirloin steaks, at least 2.5cm thick
    • salt and pepper to taste
    • 2 tablespoons Worcestershire sauce
    • 6 asparagus spears, ends trimmed
    • 2 tablespoons olive oil
    • 8 slices Gruyere cheese

    Prep:5min  ›  Cook:15min  ›  Extra time:15min marinating  ›  Ready in:35min 

    1. Season the steaks with salt and pepper to taste. Place into a glass dish and drizzle with Worcestershire sauce. Turn the steaks, cover and refrigerate 15 minutes. Turn the steaks again and marinate 15 minutes longer.
    2. Preheat an outdoor barbecue for medium-high heat and lightly oil the cooking grate.
    3. Place the steaks on the preheated barbecue, close lid and cook for 7 minutes. Toss the asparagus spears with a little olive oil and season with salt and pepper to taste. Place the asparagus onto the barbecue, turn steaks over and close lid. Cook until the steaks are beginning to firm and are slightly pink in the centre and the asparagus is tender, about 7 additional minutes. Turn the asparagus halfway through. Top each steak with 3 asparagus spears and a slice of Gruyere. Continue cooking until the cheese has melted. Remove from the barbecue and let stand 5 minutes before serving.

    Cooking times have been updated in the recipe. If your steak is thinner or thicker than 1" reduce or increase the cook times. 7 mins on each side for a 1" thick cut will result in a medium rare to medium cooked steak.  -  28 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)

    This was very good. You really have to get a good steak that isnt too chewy. it you dont cut the asparagus bottoms off high its makes for a chewy meal.  -  05 Aug 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
