Marinated Sirloin with Caramelized Onions

It's hard to describe just how much I love this dish. The marinade includes onions and wine vinegar, which bring out an incredibly smooth, rich flavor. The longer you can marinate the sirloin, the better. And instead of letting the onions go to waste, pour off most of the remaining marinade and saute the marinated onions while the steak is on the grill. The onions will caramelize in the leftover vinegar mixture, and you'll end up with sweet, sticky, golden brown onions that go unbelievably well with the meat. I like to grill the sirloin to a nice medium rare and serve with the onions piled on top. Bon appetit!

about 2 lbs sirloin steak
1/4 cup salad oil
1/4 cup lemon juice
1/4 cup wine vinegar
1 tsp. black pepper
2 tsp. salt
1 clove garlic, minced (a little extra never hurts)
1 sliced onion (use 1.5 to have lots left over for a side dish)

Combine all ingredients in large bowl.
Place sirloin in extra-large freezer bag, and pour marinade over the meat in the bag.
Seal the bag and place in refrigerator to marinate for at least four hours.
Remove steak from bag, and grill until desired doneness (I like medium rare).
Once you have removed the meat from the marinade, pour off remaining marinade and place onions in large skillet over medium heat. Sautee until golden.
