    Grilled a flat iron steak with grilled eggplant bruschetta and sweet potato salad yesterday. Wife likes the steak medium so I'm sure it won't be pleasing to many of y'all but I thought I'd share nonetheless.

    Here's the steak -- just under 2 lbs. Took it out to warm ahead of time. Blackened and set aside.

    While the grill is heating up, knocked out a caprese with mango.

    I had made a sweet potato salad with cilantro, lime, red onion, and peanuts earlier.

    I don't know what happened with the focus here. It's a little hazy.

    I know what you are wondering: "Did you let it rest for God's sake?" Yeah I did. Tented it to get it to medium.

    So I haven't figured out how to keep all those juices from running out while it rests??? I cook it on high. Still tastes pretty good.

    And here it is plated -- my wife's plate. she is preggers with twins so she can house that whole thing. I didn't eat the bread -- the whole thing is relatively low carb.

    I would totally eat that - steak's just a little overdone, not wrecked. :D

    Nice job.
