There were so many entries for our summer grilling contest that it took us a while to choose.  (yes, we cooked each and every one!)

After much deliberation we chose Greg’s Chili Steak Recipe.  It had an interesting combination of flavors that we had never tried before, used ingredients found in most kitchens, and also passed the kid-test (Josh’s nieces and nephews loved it)

Give it a try yourself and let us know what you think

Chili Beef with Balsamic Honey Walnuts

Ingredients

1 (1 1/2 lb) Flat Iron steak (Shoulder Top Blade Steak), 1 inch thick
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil, divided
2 teaspoons chili powder
1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
1 teaspoon Salt
1/2 teaspoon ground black pepper
1 onion, thinly sliced
1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
2 tablespoons honey
1/3 cup chopped walnuts
1 teaspoon fresh rosemary
2 tablespoons butter

Instructions

1. Rub steaks with 1 tablespoon olive oil and season with mixture of chili powder, cumin, salt and pepper. Grill steaks over medium-high heat 4 minutes per side for rare to medium rare.
2. In a small sauté pan over the grill cook onions in remaining olive oil until tender, 5 minutes until tender. Add balsamic vinegar and cook until liquid has evaporated, 3-4 minutes. Add honey, walnuts, rosemary and butter, mixing until butter melts and is incorporated.
3. Let beef rest 5 minutes before serving topped with honey walnut mixture.

Serves 4

Just finished reading "The Bucolic Plague"

Laugh out loud funny. It has been my dream to find a farm in Southwest Wi. Looked all summer and hoped to "come across one" soon. With your inspiring story it proves dreams come true!

A new fan to your website.

This recipe looks so good. I grill at least 4 times a week. Its great grilling all through the year. So cozy, sitting by a warm grill in chilled air; especially with a wonderful drink. Definetly with the Beekman Bourbon Sour!!! Or a true Irish Coffee.

I grilled this weekend and used the tools that I won in the contest. I just wanted to say that they were of high quality and if anyone is in the market for grilling tools you will not- go wrong is you choose OXO.

We visited Sharon Springs last Friday, after watching your TV program…We so enjoy the two of you and what you are doing…Oh by the way we stopped at The Mercantile for some goodies….I came away with a armful…I have to tell you that I love the Onion Jam, and the cheese is very tasty…I should not forget the soap…got some for myself and a birthday month soap for my friend…I am always trying to think of something different to get her…and the soap was a perfect gift..

Keep up the good work Brent and Josh, your hard work is paying off…

Looking forward to the Fall Festival…Just wish I had known all of this sooner as I would so much love to visit the farm, but from all accounts it is all sold out, so I will look forward to the newletter for next year and be up to date…
