Christmas Classics

Prepare grill.

To prepare sauce, combine the first 7 ingredients in a small saucepan; bring to a boil. Cook until reduced to 1/3 cup (about 6 minutes). Cool. Place the onions, cilantro, peppercorns, garlic and oil in a food processor; process until finely chopped. Add orange juice mixture, sesame seeds and 1/2 tsp salt; pulse to combine. Set aside.

To prepare steaks, sprinkle the beef with 1/2 tsp salt and black pepper. Place steaks on a grill rack coated with cooking spray; grill 3 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness. Serve steaks with sauce. Garnish with cilantro sprigs, if desired.

Cook's notes: Sauce can be made ahead of time. 12 servings (serving size: 1 steak and about 1 tablespoon sauce).
