Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 beef blade steaks or 4 boneless beef chuck steaks, cut 1 inch thick
  • 1 (5 ounce) package spreadable cheese with garlic and herbs (optional topping for steak)
  • 12 cup red wine vinaigrette dressing
  • 14 cup chopped dried fig (or fig preserves)


  1. In a blender place marinade ingredients (vinaigrette and figs) and process until blended.
  2. Place steaks in a marinating dish or plastic bag and pour marinade over steaks. Marinate refrigerated for at least 2 hours.
  3. Prepare grill.
  4. Remove steaks from marinade and discard marinade.
  5. Place steaks on grill over medium, ash covered coals, and grill covered (10-15 minutes for medium rare) (8-10 for rare and 14-16 for well done) to degree of doneness desired, turning occasionally.
  6. Season steaks with salt and pepper.
  7. ***Optional*** While steaks are cooking, heat cheese in a small saucepan over medium low heat for 2-4 minutes or until melted, stirring frequently. ***If your cheese spread doesn't have chives, just snip some chives into the saucepan while cheese is melting or add your favorite garden herbs.***.
  8. Serve steaks with optional cheese sauce if desired. (The sauce is also good over potatoes served with the steaks).
