Steak with Apricot Sauce


This delicious recipe is perfect for company, and very quick and easy to make with only five ingredients. You can use dried plums (prunes, actually) or any other dried fruit in this easy meal.

Prep Time: 15 minutes

Cook Time: 20 minutes

Total Time: 35 minutes

Yield: Serves 4


  • 1 cup beef broth
  • 1 cup orange juice
  • 1/2 cup chopped dried apricots
  • 3 tablespoons apricot preserves
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 4 New York strip steaks or ribeye steaks
  • 2 tsp. cracked black pepper
  • 1 Tbsp. vegetable oil


In small saucepan, combine broth, juice and apricots. Cook until mixture is reduced and thickened, about 7-10 minutes. Add apricot preserves and salt and continue cooking over very low heat, stirring frequently. When you start grilling steaks, remove sauce from heat.

Prepare and preheat grill. Press the pepper firmly into each side of the steaks (1/4 teaspoon for each side). Brush grill rack with oil so steaks don't stick. Grill steaks 6" from medium coals for 8-10 minutes, turning once, until medium doneness (145 degrees F). Place on serving platter and pour warm apricot mixture over.
