Mr. Food: Tangy Grilling

We're spending a lot of time in the great outdoors grilling our favorites, and that sunshine, yeah, it sure feels good! So why not add a splash of sunny taste to our food? Here's how!

Using any brands at all, in a large, re-sealable plastic storage bag we combine 1/2 cup each of olive oil and fresh orange juice, 1/4 cup soy sauce, the grated peel of an orange, a minced garlic clove or two, 1 tablespoon sugar, and 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper.

Now, what we do is we place 4 eight-ounce boneless beef loin strip steaks in the bag, we seal it and give it a good shake to coat the steaks. Now we let that marinate in the fridge for about 3 hours, turning it once in a while, and when we're ready to grill them, we remove 'em from the bag and discard the marinade.

We cook them on a medium-high heat for 5 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare, or longer, you know, to our desired doneness. Now, for more excitement? If we want, we could cut up 1/2-inch slices of oranges, throw them on the hot grill for a moment or two, to get some grill marks, and then serve 'em as a sunny garnish alongside our juicy, full-flavored steak, and everybody's taste buds will come alive!

And look, if you’d like the recipe, you just send a self-addressed, stamped envelope, marked “Orange Grilled Strip Steak,” to me, Mr. Food, back at the station, or get it online right away for the extra sizzle for your steaks! Because what better inspiration than a sunny day, like this, for adding the taste of sunshine to our…"OOH IT'S SO GOOD!!®"
