1/4 cup red wine vine­gar

1 ta­ble­spoon fresh thyme

2 ta­ble­spoons any steak sea­son­ing blend 2 tea­spoons minced gar­lic

1 tea­spoon crushed red pep­per

For the steak and as­para­gus

1 pound beef top round steak 1 pound trimmed as­para­gus 1 tea­spoon olive oil 3 ta­ble­spoons shaved Parmesan Coarse salt to taste

Com­bine mari­nade in­gre­di­ents ina medium bowl. Place beef and mari­nade in a re­seal­able plas­tic bag. Mar­i­nate 6 hours to overnight; turn oc­ca­sion­ally. Re­move steak and dis­card mari­nade. Toss as­para­gus with oil. Place steak in cen­ter of grill over medium heat; ar­range as­para­gus around steak. Grill steak, cov­ered, 10 to 11 min­utes. Grill as­para­gus 6 to 10 min­utes. Af­ter re­mov­ing, im­me­di­ately sprin­kle cheese over hot as­para­gus. Carve steak into thin slices. Sea­son with salt, as de­sired.

Note: To make as­para­gus spears eas­ier to turn on the grill, thread them ladder-style onto two 12-inch me­tal skew­ers. Insert a skewer about 1 inch from each end of each spear, leav­ing a small space be­tween spears. Use tongs to turn en­tire as­para­gus “ladder” for even cook­ing.
