Reviews for Grilled Sirloin with Chili-Beer Barbecue Sauce
"Absolutely loved this! Forgot to baste with the sauce during grilling, so ended up pouring sauce over all of the steak during plating...but still so wonderful. I think this would be good with flat iron or another cut of steak as well."
"This was so incredibly good! I didn't have soy sauce so I subbed one tablespoon of Hoisin Sauce. This was sooo good I used what was left on boneless/skinless chicken thighs cut into bite size pieces, shook in cornstarch, then pan fried in a combination of olive and canola oils. Drained them on papertowels then put them in a large bowl and tossed them with the rest of this sauce. Served it over rice and my husband and two boys said to definitely make again!! This is a versatile sauce that can be used many ways! Also, I couldn't find just one bottle of beer, but I found Kroger carries individual bottles of beer for sale and I used Icehouse."
