  Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 Whisk together chicken broth, honey, olive oil and Italian seasoning in bowl. Season with generous pinch of each salt and pepper. On large rimmed parchment paper-lined baking sheet, toss red peppers, mushrooms and zucchini with half the broth mixture. Set remaining broth mixture aside.


Season beef with remaining salt and pepper; place on vegetables. Place under broiler about 3 inches (8 cm) from heat; broil until lightly charred, about 7 minutes. Remove from oven; toss vegetables and turn beef over. Return to oven and broil for 7 minutes. Remove steak and let rest. Stir corn into vegetables; broil until vegetables are charred and softened, about 5 minutes.

 3.   Meanwhile, cook orzo according to package directions; drain and toss with remaining broth mixture, green onions, sun-dried tomatoes and Parmesan cheese. Spoon onto warm deep platter; top with charred mixed veggies. Thinly slice beef across the grain and arrange over veggies.
Bright Idea: This recipe uses the oven broiler, to sear thick-cut steak and colourful veggies to perfection – all at the same time, in just one pan. Now that’s easy!
