I do love a good steak and this weekend Walmart is hosting a big steak cook-off .  I love a good firefighter, too so I’ve got the best of both worlds.  Firefighters from two Atlanta firehouses are firing-up the grill to go head-to-head in the Walmart Steak-Over Challenge presented by Kingsford Charcoal, Dr. Pepper and A.1. on SaturdayApril 20 from noon – 2 p.m. at the 1550 Scenic Highway N Walmart store parking lot.

It’s Danny Pinto from Station 21 and his “Smokey Steaks with Sweet Onion Marinade” versus Station 11’s Jeff Schultz ( Kenny Hutchinson will represent station 11) and his “Southern Sizzle Steaks.” Both sound delicious and I can’t wait to taste them.

Here are the recipes if you can’t make it out to cast your vote:

Smokey Steaks with Sweet Onion Marinade-Danny Pinto

Makes:                        4 servings

Prep time:       10-15 minutes

Cook time:      10 minutes

YOU’LL NEED

3-4       Walmart Choice rib-eye steaks, about 24-32 ounces total

Chicago steak seasoning, to taste

1          20-ounce bottle Dr. Pepper®

¼         cup of olive oil

2          tablespoons Worcestershire sauce

¾         cup minced onion

 

INSTRUCTIONS

Place the steaks in a shallow dish, and sprinkle with Chicago steak seasoning on both sides.  Mix the Dr. Pepper, olive oil and Worcestershire sauce together, and pour over the steaks, turning to coat both sides with the mixture. Cover the steaks with the minced onions, and marinate for one hour.

 

When ready to cook, prepare a charcoal grill for direct high heat (450-500 degrees F) using Kingsford® Charcoal.

Remove the steak from the marinade and wipe off onions. Season on both sides with more steak seasoning.

Brush the cooking grates clean. Grill the steaks with the lid closed as much as possible, turning once or twice, until cooked to your desired doneness, 6 to 8 minutes for medium rare.  Remove steaks from the grill and let rest for 5 minutes before serving.
