Grilled Flat Iron Steak with Raspberry Chipolte Sauce


Ann from Fisher & Weiser was kind enough to send me some of their fantastic sauces (including pasta sauces) and marinade to try and blog about. You really need to visit their impressive site; Fisher & Weiser carries a wide array of grilling sauces plus they showcase several recipes using their sauces.



When I arrived home from work last Wednesday, I knew I was going to grill a flat iron steak and had been thinking all afternoon about what kind of seasoning or sauce to use. Well I got to rest my thinker when I spotted the Fisher & Weiser box sitting on the front porch!



It was a no brainer on which sauce to try first, Roasted Raspberry Chipolte! This sauce made my life so much easier and so very tasty! This is a perfect blend of raspberries and smoky chipotles. The roasted raspberry very hangs out on the back your palette while the chipolte flavor gives off a definite pop without being overpoweringly spicy.





Coat the steak evenly with extra virgin olive oil and very generously season with grill seasoning. Massage the seasoning into the meat on both side and allow the steak to rest for 10 to 15 minutes.




While the steak is resting, pour about 1/3 cup of Roasted Raspberry Chipolte Sauce into a sauce pan and slowly warm over very low heat.



I was temporarily out of fire wood to start a fire outside, which made it too cold for me to gou outside and fire up the gill, so I wound up using my grill pan.

Place the steak on a pre-heated grill (medium-high heat).




Sear/cook for about 7 minutes per side for medium rare.




Remove steak from grill, cover with a foil tent to allow the juices to re-distribute for about 10 minutes.



Slice your steak and ladle on some warm Roasted Raspberry and Chipolte sauce and my goodness, what a taste sensation you will have going on in your mouth!

That sounds absolutely delish, wish they would send me some, LOL! and Yes I would go to Tuscany with you in a hot minute!

This really does look delicious. I love their barbecue sauce and find it to be a nicely balanced combo of hot and sweet.

Pam said...

That's a great review. I will see if I can find these sauces in Canada. The whole meal looks delicious.

Betsy from Tennessee said...

Looks so good. I love a good steak--but have trouble finding a good place to buy GOOD meat. Where do you buy your meat? We get our pork and chicken at Sam's --and love it---but I don't care for their beef as much. Give me some suggestions please. I love a good steak--but don't want it to taste tough or rubbery.

Hugs,
Betsy

That sounds amazing.

Mary said...

How timely for that box to arrive when it did and wow that looks good! I like using the grill pan sometimes anyway. That steak looks perfect!!

That cut of meat emerged a few years ago.. It has the flavor of chuck, the tenderness approaching sirloin, and only a strip of of inedible tendon easily removed or avoided .. A diamond in the rough- and well worth the relatively inexpensive cost! Sauces looked good!

My mouth is just watering at the thought of this. YUM YUM YUM

This definitely has my mouth watering! What a gorgeous sauce as well. I would love to try it especially with the chipotle in it to kick it up a bit. Perfect for a grilled steak.

tamilyn said...

Yum, yum, yum. I can't find flat iron steaks here.

Laurie said...

Love the dinner idea appearing on your doorstep! The food fairies were in your neighborhood.

Your Veteran's Day post made me cry. Your father is adorable, and handsome and very, very noble. My grandfather never spoke about his time over there either, but "Saving Private Ryan" touched me the same way it touched you.

And I never forget the families who are still sacrificing so much for our country.

Question: I cannot tell, Are you cooking the steak in the grill pan on top of the stove or in the oven or broiler? If it is on top, do you have cooktop stove, electric burner or electric? Give me a shout in my box at HHM please. Thanks Katherine. It looks absolutely delish!

Chris said...

I can't wait to get my package, they shipped it already. Looks good!

Joanne said...

I love trying different kinds of marinades! Raspberry and smoky chipotle seem like they would go really well together.

Penny said...

Love the sound of this Katherine. We had a raspberry chipolte sauce once but cannot find it anymore. We put it on grilled pork tenderloin.

Marjie said...

Looks like it was a wonderful dinner! You always get such great freebies! I love a good steak with a nice sauce for it.

Claudia said...

What a perfect, perfect,perfect dinner. You now have me tasting it! Raspberry-chipotle - a match made in heaven. Tasting that also.

Julie said...

That sauce sounds great. I love how you described the flavor :)

A Year on the Grill said...

Good good good for you... Their stuff is incredible, and this is a terrific looking recipe. I used mine over pork, and of course, makes a great dip just add a little cream cheese.

Nicely donE!!!

Candy Girl said...
