Give your grilled steaks a kick of hot smoky flavor with this chipotle pepper sauce.
- 1/3 cup sugar
- 1 medium onions, finely chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1-1/2 cups light beer or water
- 1 6-ounce can tomato paste
- 1/4 cup Worcestershire sauce
- 1/4 cup vinegar
- 2 tablespoons purchased habanero hot pepper sauce
- 1 tablespoon chopped canned chipotle peppers in adobo sauce
- 4 10-ounce beef rib-eye or sirloin strip steaks, cut 1 inch thick
- Place the sugar in a medium-sized saucepan over medium-high heat; do not stir.
- Once the sugar begins to melt, reduce the heat to low and stir in the onion and the garlic. Cook the mixture for 5 minutes.
- In the meantime, place the beer to boil in a small skillet.
- Slowly add the boiling beer to the sugar mixture, whisking continuously to prevent sticking, and then add the tomato paste, Worcestershire sauce, vinegar, habanero sauce, chipotle peppers, and salt.
- Bring the mixture to a boil and then reduce the heat to medium-low and simmer, uncovered for 20 minutes.
- In the meantime, prepare the grill on medium heat after lightly oiling the grill rack to prevent sticking.
- Place the steaks on the grill and cook until desired doneness, making sure to brush the steaks with the chipotle pepper sauce during the last few minutes of cooking.
- Serve steaks with a side of extra sauce.
