Photography: Becky Luigart-Stayner; Styling: Lydia DeGaris-Pursell

Canned peach nectar, near the bottled fruit juices in the grocery, is the base for a slightly sweet sauce that pairs well with highly seasoned beef. You can make and refrigerate the sauce up to a day ahead; bring it to room temperature just before serving.

Yield: 8 servings (serving size: 3 ounces steak and about 2 tablespoons sauce)
