Just a small amount of garlic and onion with about double the black pepper. Don't want to over power them, and just about 4-5 minutes on each side with coals between medium and medium high. You don't want the coals blazing because the fat will catch fire and burn them. I like them medium rare. Carrots are easy. Thinly sliced and in a glass bowl with about 1/2 oz.water covered with plastic wrap and very small hole in middle to let the steam out 7 minutes in microwave. Easy stuff !
