Grilled Steaks Balsamico
Prep: 15 min., Chill: 2 hrs., Grill: 14 min., Cook: 4 min. These delicious steaks won top honors at the National Beef Cook-Off. We served the cheese sauce in hollowed-out lemon halves.
2/3 cup balsamic vinaigrette
1/4 cup fig preserves
4 (6- to 8-ounce) boneless beef chuck-eye steaks
1 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
1 (6.5-ounce) container buttery garlic-and-herb spreadable cheese
Process vinaigrette and preserves in a blender until smooth. Place steaks and vinaigrette mixture in a shallow dish or a large zip-top plastic freezer bag. Cover or seal, and chill at least 2 hours. Remove steaks from marinade, discarding marinade.
Grill, covered with grill lid, over medium-high heat (350° to 400°) 5 to 7 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Remove to a serving platter, and sprinkle evenly with salt and pepper; keep warm.
Heat cheese in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring often, 2 to 4 minutes or until melted. Serve cheese sauce with steaks.
Note: For testing purposes only, we used Alouette Garlic + Herbs Spreadable Cheese.
Yield: Makes 4 servings
