  • 1 boneless beef top loin steak, cut 1 inch thick (about 10 ounces)
  • 3 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground black pepper
  • 1 medium onion, coarsely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon cider vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon honey
  • 1 small nectarine, pitted and chopped
  • 1 teaspoon snipped fresh mint
  • Fresh mint sprigs (optional)


  1. Trim fat from steak. With the tip of a paring knife, make small slits in steak; insert half of the garlic into slits. Wrap steak in plastic wrap; chill for 30 minutes. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Meanwhile, for relish, in a large nonstick skillet cook onions and remaining garlic in hot oil over medium heat 5 to 10 minutes or until onions are golden, stirring occasionally. Stir in vinegar and honey. Stir in nectarine and the snipped mint; heat through.
  3. Preheat indoor electric grill. Place steaks on the grill rack. If using a covered grill, close lid. Grill until steaks are desired doneness. (For a covered grill, allow 4 to 6 minutes for medium rare (145 degrees F) or 6 to 8 minutes for medium (160 degrees F). For an uncovered grill, allow 8 to 12 minutes for medium rare (145 degrees F) or 12 to 15 minutes for medium (160 degrees F), turning once halfway through grilling.) Serve the steaks with relish. If desired, garnish with mint sprigs. Makes 2 servings.


  • Outdoor grill method: If using a charcoal grill place steak on grill rack directly over medium coals. Grill to desired doneness, turning once. Allow 10 to 12 minutes for medium rare (145 degrees F) and 12 to 15 minutes for medium (160 degrees F). If using a gas grill, preheat grill. Reduce temperature to medium. Place steak on grill rack over heat; cover and grill as above.
