Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce.Medium dice the figs. Place in a bowl; cover with 1/3 cup of hot water. Set aside to rehydrate at least 10 minutes. Zest the lemon to get 2 teaspoons (or use the small side  of a box grater). Quarter and deseed the lemon. Quarter the radish lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise. Place in a bowl; add the sugar and the juice of 2 lemon wedges. Season with salt and pepper; stir to combine. Set aside to marinate, stirring occasionally, at least 10 minutes. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Cut off and discard the stem ends of the brussels sprouts; halve lengthwise, then thinly slice crosswise.

Pat the steaks dry with paper towels; season with salt and pepper on all sides. In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the seasoned steaks. Cook, turning occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes for medium-rare, or until browned and cooked to your desired degree of doneness.* Leaving any browned bits (or fond) in the pan, transfer to a cutting board and let rest at least 5 minutes.

*An instant-read thermometer should register 145°F.
