These delicious steaks won top honors at the National Beef Cook-Off. We served the cheese sauce in hollowed-out lemon halves.

How to Make It

Step 1

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.

Step 2

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.

Step 3

Heat cheese in a small saucepan over low heat, stirring often, 2 to 4 minutes or until melted. Serve cheese sauce with steaks.

Step 4

Note: For testing purposes only, we used Alouette Garlic + Herbs Spreadable Cheese.

I used the marinade for a flat iron steak, marinated for 1 1/2 hours, and it was delicious! So easy with just two ingredients in the marinade. I will use recipe again.

Used Bison steaks. Excellent flavor with a slightly sweet hint from the fig preserves. Went well with green beans with garlic vinagerette
