Sirloin Sandwiches with Red Onion Marmalade

A homemade marmalade of red onions, red wine, prunes and figs gives this sandwich out-of-this-world flavor. Crumbled goat cheese provides just the right amount of creaminess.

Ingredients

  • 1 beef Top Sirloin Steak boneless, cut 3/4 inch thick (about 1 pound)
  • 1 clove garlic, cut in half
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 mini baguette rolls (each 8 inches long), split
  • 1/4 cup goat cheese crumbles
Marmalade:
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 cups thinly sliced red onions
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine, such as Cabernet or Merlot
  • 1/4 cup chopped pitted prunes
  • 1/4 cup fig preserves
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 2 teaspoons fresh thyme, chopped
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

Instructions

  1. To prepare marmalade, heat butter and olive oil in large nonstick skillet over medium heat until hot. Add onions; cook 8 to 10 minutes or until tender and beginning to brown, stirring occasionally. Stir in wine, prunes, preserves and vinegar. Cook 5 minutes or until liquid evaporates and marmalade thickens and turns dark, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat; stir in thyme and salt. Set aside to cool.

  2. Rub both sides of beef steak with garlic; sprinkle evenly with pepper. Place steak on grid over medium, ash-covered coals. Grill, covered, 7 to 11 minutes (over medium heat on preheated gas grill, 8 to 13 minutes) for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning occasionally. About 2 minutes before steaks are done, place rolls, cut sides down, on grid. Grill until toasted.

    Cook's Tip: Four (4-inch long) French rolls, split, may be substituted for mini baguettes.
  3. Carve steak into thin slices. Evenly layer steak slices, marmalade and cheese on bottom of each roll. Close sandwiches; cut each crosswise in half.
