Grilled Steak with Hoisin Mustard Sauce

recipe adapted from a magazine advertisement for Beef It's What's for Dinner
steaks (I suggest a lean cut like Sirloin or Strip)
salt and pepper
1 teaspoon olive oil
3 tablespoons chopped yellow onions
2 tablespoons chopped green onions
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 cup beef broth
1/4 cup Hoisin sauce
2 teaspoons Dijon mustard
1 teaspoon tomato paste
2 teaspoons red wine vinegar
Salt and pepper your steaks as desired. Grill your steaks to desired doneness. (Hubby is always in charge of grilling at my house, so I don't attempt to give any instructions.)
Meanwhile, heat a small saucepan on medium heat; add olive oil. Add garlic and both onions, cook 2 minutes. Add remaining ingredients, stir and simmer for 6 to 10 minutes or until the sauce is thick. Set aside.
After plating each steak, top with sauce.
This makes enough sauce for 6 to 8 small steaks. We used an excess of sauce on our 2 steaks because it was so tasty!
For my side dish, I sauteed fresh snow peas and red bell pepper slices in a little sesame oil, garlic and soy sauce. I stirred in sesame seeds at the end of cooking time.

Hey Beth, have you tried this recipe by using it as a marinade instead of a sauce? My wife has a similar recipe that we use as a marinade, and I find that it locks more flavor in the meat. I’d also suggest to your husband to grill it with direct heat to keep those juices in.
