These aren’t your ordinary beef steaks; they have fruit and fire! Olé!
cup peach preserves
cup lime juice
chipotle chile in adobo sauce (from 7-oz can), seeded, chopped
teaspoon adobo sauce (from can of chiles)
tablespoons chopped fresh cilantro
boneless beef strip steaks, 1 inch thick (about 3 lb)
teaspoon garlic-pepper blend
teaspoon ground cumin
peaches, halved, pitted, if desired
Cilantro sprigs, if desired
Heat coals or gas grill for direct heat. In 1-quart saucepan, heat preserves, lime juice, chile and adobo sauce over low heat, stirring occasionally, until preserves are melted. Stir in chopped cilantro; set aside.
Sprinkle each beef steak with garlic-pepper blend, cumin and salt. Cover and grill beef over medium heat 15 to 18 minutes for medium doneness, turning once or twice and brushing top of beef with preserves mixture during last 2 minutes of grilling. Add peach halves to grill for last 2 to 3 minutes of grilling just until heated.
Heat any remaining preserves mixture to boiling; boil and stir 1 minute. Serve with beef and peaches. Garnish with cilantro sprigs.
Use 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder and 1/2 teaspoon coarsely ground black pepper for the 1 teaspoon garlic-pepper blend.
Brush the grill rack with vegetable oil or spray it with cooking spray before heating (spraying the cold grill is safer). This prevents food from sticking and makes cleaning the grill easier.
