Easy Grilled Tri-Tip Steak & Key Lime Pie
Easy Grilled Tri-Tip Steak
1 pound Tri-Tip Steak
Montreal Steak Seasoning
Remove steak from refrigerator. Let steak come to room temperature, at least 30 minutes before grilling.
Meanwhile, preheat gas or charcoal grill.
Sprinkle steak with desired amount of steak seasoning.
Grill steaks to desired doneness.
Let steaks rest, so juices can re-distribute back into the steak.
Serve steak with baked potato, salad and garlic bread or can thinly slice steak for steak salad or steak sandwiches.
To test doneness of a steak, use these tips: Hold your hand out. Touch your palm at these points. Touch under your pinkie; if the steak feels like this when pressed on it is MEDIUM. Touch the center of your palm; WELL-DONE meat should feel like this. Touch under the fleshy part of your thumb; if steak feels like this it is RARE

One 14 oz can fat-free sweetened condensed milk
3 large eggs or 3/4 cup egg substitute
1/2 cup fresh key lime juice or lime juice

Can also substitute lemon juice for the lime juice and lemon zest for the zest
Limes are rich in Vitamin C and contain antioxidants, called flavonoids, that help protect against cancer and other diseases. Because of their higher acidity, Key limes are much brighter and the the flavor is more complex than regular limes, making them great for drinks and desserts.
