Grilled Flat Iron Steak Summer Salad

Flat iron is one of the most versatile cuts for quick grilling and in this fast recipe we are showing you how to use summer’s bounty to its fullest with a tequila lime marinated flat iron, 

char-grilled and served as a loaded salad. You’ll never look at salad the same.


– flat iron steak – olive oil – tequila – Juice from one lime – black pepper – Salt – Arugula – watermelon


Marinate the flat iron steak. Whisk the olive oil, tequila and lime juice together.

Sprinkle the flat iron liberally with black pepper and pour the marinade over the steak in a resealable bag. Allow the steak to marinate in the refrigerator for at least one hour.

Meanwhile, set up your grill for indirect heat and allow the grill to heat up by arranging the coals in a pile to one side.

When ready to grill, add Western Wood Chips (I used cherry for this one just to keep the summer flavors going strong) to the hot coals to produce smoke.

Grill the steak, corn and watermelon with the lid closed, only opening to rotate the corn and flip the steak.
