A friend of mine was asking me for some healthy grilled steak options for the Fourth of July, so I thought up this recipe for Steak Mediterranean. I developed this recipe for Laura’s Lean Beef since I love the lemon zest, parsley and capers. This recipe is hearty but also light, flavorful and perfect for summer.

This recipe is a breeze, and it’s bursting with flavors from paprika, cumin, olives, parsley and tomatoes. If you don’t like cumin, you can omit it and double the paprika. Using chicken cutlets cuts down on the cooking time so you will have this to your table in about 25 minutes or so. Serve with a big green salad, roasted asparagus or some rice, and that’s all you need for dinner tonight.
