1 pomegranate

3 dried figs

1 clove garlic

¼ cup (15 mL) white wine vinegar

Salt and pepper

1 lb (500 g) Beef Marinating Steak (Inside Round, Sirloin Tip or Flank), 1-inch (2.5 cm) thick

1 pink grapefruit

8 cup (2 L) mixed baby greens OR bagged salad greens

1 jar (6 oz/170 mL) marinated artichokes, drained and halved

½ cup (125 mL) thinly sliced red or green onion

Citrus Dressing (recipe follows)


Place half the seeds from pomegranate into blender, reserving remaining seeds. Add figs, garlic and vinegar to blender; blend until paste-like. Season with salt and pepper to taste; place in large sealable freezer bag. Pierce beef all over with fork. Add to freezer bag and refrigerate 30 minutes.

Meanwhile cut peel and pith off grapefruit. Separate and reserve sections, collecting and squeezing out juice from membranes; set sections aside and reserve juice.

Discard marinade and grill or broil steak using medium-high heat, 10 to 12 minutes, turning at least twice, for medium-rare doneness 145°F(63°C). Slice beef thinly across the grain. Divide salad greens among 4 serving plates; top with beef strips, grapefruit sections, artichoke hearts and onion. Drizzle each with Citrus Dressing and garnish with reserved pomegranate seeds.

Citrus Dressing: Add enough white wine vinegar to reserved grapefruit juice to make 1/2 cup (125 mL). Whisk in 2 tbsp (30 mL) EACH olive oil, liquid honey and chopped fresh mint and 1/2 tsp (2 mL) grainy Dijon mustard; season with salt and pepper to taste.

Chef's Notes: Although Beef Marinating Steaks normally take 12 to 24 hours to marinate, the powerful natural enzymes in the figs tenderize these steaks in a fraction of the time.
