  • Meanwhile, seed and quarter sweet peppers. Brush peppers with olive oil. Place pepper quarters on grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill for 12 to 15 minutes or until peppers are crisp-tender and lightly browned, turning once. Remove peppers from grill; cool slightly. Cut peppers into wide strips. Place peppers in bowl. Add basil and balsamic vinegar; toss well. Set aside (see Tip).

  • Place steaks on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium coals. Grill until desired doneness, turning once. (Allow 11 to 15 minutes for medium-rare doneness (145 degrees F) or 14 to 18 minutes for medium doneness (160 degrees F).) Cut steaks into serving-size pieces. Serve with peppers.

Tips

Tip: Peppers can be served immediately or at room temperature.
