He executes justice for the oppressed and gives food to the hungry. The LORD sets prisoners free, the LORD gives sight to the blind, he lifts up those who are bowed down, the LORD loves those who live justly. The LORD watches over the immigrant and sustains the fatherless and the widow, but he frustrates the ways of the wicked. -Psalm 146:7-9

Grilled New York Strip Steak with Beer and Molasses Steak Sauce

I have heard some really, I mean really great things about this recipe. I trust the Neelys, they always have great recipes on their show, so I am sure this one will be a hit! I am going to try it out tonight. (debating if I want to try chicken first instead of steak..hmmm) Will let you know how it turns out.

Prep Time: 10 min
Inactive Prep Time: 10 min
Cook Time:40 min
Serves: 6 servings

Ingredients For sauce:
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 medium onion, finely diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 cups ketchup
1/2 cup molasses
1/2 cup apple cider
1/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup lager-style beer
1 tablespoon yellow mustard
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
1 tablespoon cayenne pepper
1 tablespoon paprika
3 (1 pound each and 1/2-inch thick) prime-aged New York Strip Steaks
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
2 tablespoons vegetable oil ( I use Olive Oil)

For the sauce: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt butter. Add onion and garlic and saute for 3 minutes, until softened. Add the rest of the ingredients; bring to a boil, then simmer until sauce is reduced to 2 cups, about 30 minutes.

Preheat grill pan. Season steak with salt and pepper and rub with oil. Grill steak about 3 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest 10 minutes and serve with sauce on side.
