Prep time: 15 minutes plus 1 hour marinating time
Cook time: 16 minutes
1 cup bourbon
1/2 cup packed brown sugar
1/4 cup instant coffee granules
1/4 cup soy sauce
4 cloves garlic
One 1-inch chunk fresh ginger
2 pounds sirloin steak tips
3 large yellow onions, chopped
In a blender, combine the bourbon, brown sugar, coffee granules, soy sauce, garlic and ginger. Purée until smooth, then transfer to a large zip-close plastic bag. Add the steak tips to the bag, close the bag, then turn to coat the meat with the marinade. Refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to overnight.
When ready, heat the broiler with an oven rack 6 inches from the heat. Remove the steaks tips from the bag. Add the onions to the bag, close, then turn to coat. Transfer the onions and the marinade to a large roasting pan.
Set the onions under the broiler and cook for 3 to 4 minutes. Remove the pan from the heat, set the steak tips over the onions, then return to the broiler. Broil for 5 to 6 minutes, then turn the tips and broil for another 5 to 6 minutes.
Let the meat rest for several minutes, then serve with onions spooned over them.
