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.

Make Ahead Tip: Prepare through Step 1 up to 1 day in advance.

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
  • Tip: To oil a grill rack: Oil a folded paper towel and use tongs to rub it over the rack. (Do not use cooking spray on a hot grill).

directions

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

Preheat the grill to medium.

Remove the steak from the marinade; discard marinade. Oil the grill rack (see Tip). Grill the steak for 4-6 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.

Meanwhile, warm the 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.
