Grilled Steaks Balsamico

A simple marinade of pureed dried figs and store-bought balsamic vinaigrette adds intense flavor to steak. This recipe is adapted from Lori Welander’s grand prize-winning recipe from the 2003 National Beef Cook-Off.

Serves 4

Prep Time 20 min

Total Time 350 min.

Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup prepared balsamic vinaigrette
  • 2 dried figs, stems trimmed, chopped
  • 1 pound sirloin steak, 1 inch thick, trimmed
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 1/3 cup herb & garlic creamy cheese spread, such as

Cooking Directions

Step 1

Place vinaigrette and figs in a blender or food processor; process until blended. Place in a large sealable plastic bag with steak and turn to coat. Marinate in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours or up to 24 hours.

Step 2

Preheat grill to medium.

Step 3

Remove the steak from the marinade; discard marinade. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the steak for 4 to 6 minutes per side for medium-rare depending on thickness. Transfer to a clean cutting board. Season with salt and pepper, tent with foil and let rest for 5 minutes.

Step 4

Meanwhile, warm cheese in a small saucepan over medium-low heat, stirring often, until melted. Carve the steak into thin slices. Serve each portion with a dollop of the cheese sauce.
