1) Grill steak
I used Trip Tip beef cut for this steak. This cut is found at the bottom of sirloin and it is what I called "poor man's sirloin" http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Tri-tip
I marinated the beef with Worcestershire sauce, thyme, oregano, and basil.
Frozen scallops that I found at Trader Joe's frozen food section
Plain old asparagus. I sliced the skin off the asparagus with a peeler. You can keep it on.
4) Shittake mushroom
Fresh mushroom. Hmmmm....yummy

It is cooking time!!!
|Make sure the charcoals are pipping hot|
|Enjoy wine while waiting for the meat to cook|
In general, it takes 7-9 minutes per side of steak (15-18 minutes total); 2 minutes per side of scallop (4 minutes total), and about 8-10 minutes for the asparagus.
|I like the mysterious feel of this picture. Very dark.|
|I use the "poking technique" to determine the doneness|
Let the wine flow and the meat be eaten.
