6 beef tenderloin steaks, cut 1 inch thick
Salt and coarsely ground black pepper
1 12-oz. jar roasted red sweet peppers, drained
6 to 12 fresh basil leaves
1/3 cup bottled red wine vinaigrette or Italian salad dressing
6 small zucchini and/or yellow summer squash, halved lengthwise
3 cloves garlic, quartered
1 green onion, cut up
1 Tbsp. snipped fresh basil or oregano or 1/2 tsp. dried basil or oregano, crushed

Sprinkle steaks lightly with salt and black pepper. Cut a 2-inch-wide pocket in the side of each steak, cutting to but not through the other side. Cut six 2x1-inch pieces roasted red pepper; set remaining peppers aside. Place a red pepper piece and one or two basil leaves in the pocket of each steak.

Brush 3 tablespoons of the vinaigrette on steak and squash. Grill steaks on the rack of an uncovered grill directly over medium heat for 7 minutes. Turn steaks and add squash. Grill for 7 to 9 minutes more for medium doneness, turning squash once.

Meanwhile, for relish, in a food processor combine remaining sweet peppers, garlic, green onion, and herb. Process until finely chopped. Stir in remaining vinaigrette. Arrange steak and squash on a platter. Serve with relish. Makes 6 servings.
