Finger Lickin’ Good Steaks


For steaks:

1 cup brown sugar

2/3 cup ketchup

2/3 cup vinegar

1/2 cup soy sauce

1/2 cup vegetable oil

2 cloves garlic, minced

2 tsp. ginger

For topping:

1 large onion, cut into strips

1-1/2 cups sliced fresh mushrooms

3 T. butter

1 cup AmberBock beer

Mix brown sugar, ketchup, vinegar, soy sauce, oil, garlic and ginger in a resealable plastic bag. Place steaks in bag, turning to coat. Marinate overnight in refrigerator. Remove steaks from marinade. Pour marinade into saucepan and bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Boil for 3 minutes. Place steaks on medium-high grill and cook to desired doneness. Brush with boiled marinade often during cooking. While steaks are cooking, sauté onions and mushrooms in butter until onions are translucent. Add dark beer and cook until thickened. Serve over steaks. Be sure to let steaks rest at least 5 minutes before serving.
