Serves 6


1 TBLS butter
1/3 cup finely chopped onion
3 cloves garlic, crushed through a press
1 bottle (12 oz) Brown Ale Beer
1/3 cup honey
1/3 cup chili sauce
1/3 cup spicy brown mustard
1 TBLS grated peeled fresh ginger
1 ¾ lbs boneless sirloin steak
1 TBLS olive oil
1 tsp salt
½ tsp black pepper


In medium saucepan over medium high heat, melt butter. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add Brown Ale Beer, honey, chili sauce, mustard and ginger; bring to a boil, reduce heat to simmering and simmer 20 minutes, stirring occasionally, until reduced and thickened. Cool to room temperature.


Prepare gas or charcoal grill, or preheat broiler. Brush steak with olive oil; season with salt and pepper. Place steak on grill or under broiler and sear 3 minutes on each side, turning with tongs. Brush generously with glaze and continue to grill or broil for about 10 minutes, turning and brushing steak with glaze several times during cooking. (You will need about ¾ cup of the glaze for brushing; refrigerate remaining glaze for another purpose.) Remove from heat when internal temperature in the thickest part of the steak reaches 135 F, for medium-rare doneness. Let steak rest 5 minutes before slicing on grain to serve.
