We have made this over an open fire pit, which is really yummy, and also on a gas grill. Try serving it with onions, peppers and potatoes grilled in a foil pack. Valerie Chipman - Lisbon, Maine

Ingredients

  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1/2 cup dry red wine or reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon minced fresh gingerroot

Directions

In a large resealable plastic bag, combine the first nine ingredients. Score the surface of the beef, making diamond shapes 1/4 in. deep; place in bag. Seal bag and turn to coat; refrigerate for 8 hours or overnight.
Drain and discard marinade. Using long-handled tongs, moisten a paper towel with cooking oil and lightly coat the grill rack. Grill steak, covered, over medium heat or broil 4 in. from the heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°).
