  • 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 black pepper, to taste

  • 1/3 cup herb & garlic creamy cheese spread 



  • 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 the marinade. Oil the grill rack. 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.
