What are some good cheap cuts of beef for steaks that would also be good on the grill?

There are many affordable cuts of meat that work well when grilled. When we think of economy cuts, we usually think of meats that need to be braised or simmered for long periods of time. Make these cuts tender by marinating them before grilling:

1 C. Italian dressing
Juice from 1 lemon or lime
2 T. fresh parsley, chopped
1 T. fresh garlic, chopped
salt and freshly ground pepper

Combine all ingredients and pour over meat. Marinate 1-3 hours.

Beef cuts to look for are flank steak, skirt steak, tri-tips, bottom round and beef stewing cubes (great for kabobs and skewers).
