Grilled Steak With Black-eyed Peas Recipe

Cook Time: 30 minutes


Servings: 6


  • 1 medium red onion, sliced into rings
  • 1 1/2 lbs skirt steak, patted dry
  • 6 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  •   kosher salt
  •   freshly ground pepper
  • 2 bunches baby turnips, trimmed and quartered (or 3 medium turnips, peeled and cut into chunks)
  • 12oz black-eyed peas, drained and rinsed
  • 2 plum tomatoes, seeded and diced
  • 2 tsp red wine vinegar
  • 4 leaves fresh basil, torn
  • 1 tbsp fresh chive, chopped


  1. Preheat a grill pan over high heat. Grill the onion rings until charred, about 2 minutes per side.
  2. Combine 3 tbsp olive oil, 1 tsp salt and 1/2 tsp pepper in a bowl, then brush over the meat.
  3. Grill the steak until slightly charred, about 3 - 4 minutes per side for medium-rare. Transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.
  4. Meanwhile, heat the remaining 3 tbsp olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat.
  5. Add the turnips and cook until fork-tender, about 8 minutes.
  6. Add the black-eyed peas and tomatoes and cook until warmed through, about 3 minutes.
  7. Stir in the onion rings and vinegar and remove from the heat.
  8. Cut the steak into 3-inch-long sections along the grain, then thinly slice the meat against the grain.
  9. Stir basil and chives into black-eyed peas and serve with the steak.
