I can't take credit for this recipe but it's sure a good one! I first saw it in a 2005 edition of Simply Perfect Grilling magazine.  Lori Welander of Richmond Virginia actually cooked this in the 2003 National Beef Cookoff and won the $50,000 1st place prize.  I've also seen this recipe appear in a BBQ cookbook I bought more recently and it was called "Steaks Balsamico".

Anyways, here's the recipe as it first appeared in the magazined followed by a couple of modifications to consider.

2/3 C Balsamic vinaigrette

1/4 C fig preserves

4 top blade steaks (about an inch thick)

1   5.2 ounce package semisoft Boursin cheese with garlic and herb

Blend the first two ingred. and marinade the steaks in the mixture for at least 2 hours

Drain steaks pat dry and grill to desired doneness

to serve- season steaks with salt and pepper and top with melted cheese

*I've used the top blades plenty of times and they're not bad for the price, though you will probably have to ask the meat mgr. at Publix or other supermarket to cut you some that are 1" thick – most of the ones they put in the case are a lot thinner, but this recipe is even better with a better quality cut of meat like a filet or something

*the Boursin cheese is kind of pricey at about 6-7 bucks for 5.2 oz…. you really need more than one package anyways…. I've tried the same type cheese that is made by Aolluete (spelling?) and it's half the cost but you get double the cheese

*I always try to marinade the steaks overnight rather than just the 2 hours

The recipe I believe… But I can't say I believe it won using blade steaks, now what I have seen as blade steaks are actually chuck. Are we talking about the same thing?  Thanks for sharing.
