- 5 garlic cloves, minced and smashed
- 1 tablespoon fresh rosemary, minced
- 1 tablespoon dark brown sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon cayenne pepper
- 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
- 2 lbs petite sirloin (You can really use any kind of steak for this marinade, but for this recipe, petite sirloin takes flavor well, is cheap, and is good for broiling!)
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
- Combine garlic, rosemary, sugar, pepper, and vinegar in a small bowl. It will be thick. (It's kind of a wet rub.)
- Rub steaks with mixture. Cover with foil, chill, and let marinate for 1-24 hours. (I know this is a huge variance in time. 24 hours will produce the most robust flavor, but I definitely know what its like to think about dinner last minute and need to marinate something quick. It's still delicious when marinated for only an hour!)
- Make glaze by combining vinegar and sugar and reducing over medium/high heat until it has reduced to about 1/4 cup.
- Dry steaks and broil for 3-4 minutes on each side, or until center reached 145 degrees F.
- Brush steaks with glaze and enjoy! (You can also brush the steaks with the glaze a little before they are done and grill them for a nice smoky flavor!)
