Champion Nutrition Recipe of the Week - Raspberry Chipotle Steak

This marinade is fabulously versatile - use it on steak, pork, turkey, chicken... whatever! AND... it's competition diet friendly! Woot! Plus - best of all... it tastes amazing! My kids are begging for more! (for those of you who are Eating Clean, and not on comp diet - substitute a fruit-only spread for the sugar free preserves... the nutritional info below shows data for the recipe both ways).

Raspberry Chipotle Grilled Steak
by Chelle Stafford
serves 6 (reduce or increase recipe as needed)

2 lb London Broil Steak (or other lean cut)
1 small can Chipotle Peppers in Adobo Sauce
1 jar Sugar-Free* Red Raspberry Preserves (10-12 oz)  OR 1 jar Fruit-Only Red Raspberry spread (10-12 oz)
1/4 cup crumbled Reduced Fat Feta Cheese
Spray Oil

Preheat Grill

Remove seeds from 5 peppers and discard seeds. (see tip below)
Mince peppers
Scoop contents of jam jar into a bowl, add peppers and mix well. Taste - if you want more heat, mince up more peppers
In a glass pan, marinate the steak in 1/4 cup of the raspberry/chipotle mixture for 20 minutes
Spray grill with oil, cook steak, basting every few minutes with a bit more sauce
Reserve 2 Tbsp of sauce, and proceed to next step:

INDOOR GRILL: Before meat is cooked through, preheat oven to broil and remove steak to a pan. Top with remaining sauce and the feta. Broil until cheese is lightly golden. Remove from heat and allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing.

OUTDOOR GRILL: When meat is almost cooked through, add remaining sauce and top with feta. Grill until cheese is lightly melted. Remove from heat and allow to rest 10 minutes before slicing.

*TIP: If you like onion, use the chopped onions that are in the adobo peppers can, too! They're very flavorful!
