For a bolder-flavored grilled steak this summer, try marinating skirt steak in red wine and topping it with all of the classic steakhouse pairings: blue cheese, mushrooms, red onion, and bacon. Cooking bacon strips right on the grill means zero grease cleanup, and a quick chop of the grilled vegetables makes for an easy, savory steak topping. Serve it all up with a Caesar Salad.
