Seared Beef Sirloin and Grilled Peaches

Grilling brings out the natural sweetness of the fruit, a perfect complement to bitter greens like arugula and the savory flavor of the steak.

  • 1 pound boneless top sirloin steak (about 1 1/2 inch thick), all visible fat discarded
  • 4 medium peaches, halved
  • 1 tablespoon canola or corn oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground preferred

  1. Preheat the grill on medium high.
  2. Put the beef and peaches on a large platter. Using a basting brush, brush the oil over the beef and peaches. Sprinkle the salt and pepper over the beef. Drizzle the honey over the peaches.
  3. Grill the beef for 8 to 10 minutes on each side for medium-rare doneness.
  4. Place the peaches on the grill with the cut side down. Grill the peaches for 3 to 4 minutes on each side, or until fork-tender.
  5. Let the beef stand for 10 minutes before slicing it.
  6. Arrange the greens on a large platter. Top with the grilled peach halves. Drizzle the peaches with the vinegar. Sprinkle with the basil and feta. Serve with the beef.

Cooking Tip: To cook the beef on the stovetop: Cook the beef over medium-high heat for 4 to 5 minutes each side for medium-rare doneness. To cook the peaches under the broiler: Preheat the broiler. Line a baking sheet with aluminum foil. Put the peaches cut side up on the foil. Broil for 6 minutes, or until tender.

Tip: You can substitute eight medium plums for the four medium peaches.
