  • 2 bacon strips, diced
  • 2 beef top sirloin steaks (6 ounces each)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper, divided
  • 1 large sweet onion, thinly sliced
  • 1-1/2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon molasses


  1. In a large skillet, cook bacon over medium heat until crisp. Remove to paper towels with a slotted spoon; drain, reserving 1-1/2 teaspoons drippings in skillet and 1-1/2 teaspoons drippings in a small bowl. Set bowl aside.
  2. Sprinkle steaks with 1/4 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon pepper. In skillet, cook steaks over medium heat for 4-6 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a thermometer should read 135°; medium, 140°; medium-well, 145°). Remove and keep warm.
  3. Add onion and reserved drippings to the skillet; saute until tender. Add vinegar, molasses and remaining salt and pepper; heat through. Serve onion mixture with steaks; sprinkle with bacon.
