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


  1. In a large bowl, combine the orange marmalade, soy sauce, lemon juice and oil. Pour 1 cup marinade into a shallow dish. Score the surface of the steak with shallow diagonal cuts, making diamond shapes. Add the steak to the marinade and turn to coat; cover and 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. Lightly oil 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 thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°), basting occasionally with reserved marinade.
