There’s nothing like juicy grilled steak tips in the summer—and the flavors in this savory brown sugar/soy/bourbon marinade are delicious! You can make this marinade ahead of time, add the meat and onion, and then freeze it all together until you’re ready to serve. Serve with grilled vegetables.

1/2 bourbon (to taste)
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 medium-size yellow onion, cut crosswise into 1/4-inch-thick rings
2 pounds sirloin steak tips or flank steak
Kosher or sea salt
Freshly ground black pepper

In a medium-size bowl, whisk together bourbon, brown sugar, Worcestershire, and soy sauce. Pour into a large zip-top bag; add onion and steak. Seal, squeezing to expel any air, and let meat marinate at least 2 hours, up to overnight (or freeze up to 3 months).

Steak Tips
When ready to cook, defrost steak and onions if you’ve previously frozen them; then drain and season meat with salt and pepper.

Set up your grill for direct high heat. To grill meat, sear on one side until nicely browned, 4 to 6 minutes. Turn meat and grill until it reaches desired doneness (4–6 minutes more for medium rare). Garnish as desired.

Cook onions in a grill pan, stirring occasionally, until golden, about 10 minutes. Or cook onions directly on grill grates away from direct heat, carefully turning once, for 8 to 10 minutes total cooking time. Serve on the side.
