We invite someone for dinner almost every weekend, and this recipe has never failed us. It can be prepared in just a few minutes. I like to serve it with vegetables and a salad. -Joan Whyte-Elliott of Fenelon Falls, Ontario

  • 2/3 cup reduced-sugar orange marmalade

  • 1/3 cup lemon juice
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 2 pounds boneless beef top round steak (2 inches thick)

Nutritional Facts

4 ounce-weight: 243 calories, 7g fat (2g saturated fat), 96mg cholesterol, 337mg sodium, 6g carbohydrate (0 sugars, 1g fiber), 37g protein. Diabetic Exchanges: 4 lean meat, 1/2 fruit.


  1. In a large bowl, combine the orange marmalade, soy sauce, lemon juice and oil. Pour 1 cup marinade into a large resealable plastic bag. Score the surface of the steak with shallow diagonal cuts, making diamond shapes. Add the steak to the marinade. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 6-8 hours, turning occasionally. Cover and refrigerate remaining marinade.
  2. Drain and discard marinade. Prepare grill for indirect heat, using a drip pan. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill beef, covered, over direct medium-hot heat for 3-4 minutes on each side or until browned.
  3. Place beef over drip pan and grill, covered, over indirect medium heat for 25-30 minutes longer or until beef reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°.), basting occasionally with reserved marinade. Yield: 6 servings.

"This is a delicious entree! I cut the recipe in half and used a choice sirloin strip steak. DH cooked it in a cast iron skillet. The marmalade marinade gave the steak a wonderful crust and a light citrus flavor. We enjoyed it with a large salad tossed with blue cheese dressing...a perfect match for a light and satisfying meal. It's a keeper, folks!"
