The spicy glaze turns an inexpensive cut of meat into something special. My son, who claims to be a "meat-a-tarian," especially loves this and asks for it all year long. —Cheryl Lundquist, Wake Forest, North Carolina

  • 1/4 cup sherry vinegar

  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt

  • GLAZE:
  • 2 tablespoons cherry preserves
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 chipotle pepper in adobo sauce, minced


  1. In a shallow bowl, combine the first eight ingredients. Add meat; turn to coat. Refrigerate at least 4 hours.
  2. In a bowl, whisk glaze ingredients. Drain beef, discarding marinade. Grill, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from heat until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°), about 4 minutes on each side. Baste with glaze during the last 2 minutes of cooking. Cut steaks in half to serve.
