Dad's Favorite Italian Grilled Steak

A favorite dish of the "dad" in my little family, namely my husband, this steak is easy to prepare and combines his favorite ingredients, shallots, garlic, lots of black pepper, and fresh rosemary. Don't marinate this steak for more than 10 hours, but make sure to marinate it for at least 3-4 hours for the ultimate flavor and tenderness. 1/4 cup chopped onion can be substituted for the shallots if you have some extra in the house.

1/2 cup olive oil
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons balsamic vinegar
4 minced garlic cloves
3 minced shallots
2 tablespoons chopped fresh rosemary
Freshly ground black pepper
3 pounds 1 1/2 inch thick sirloin steaks

Mix together all of the ingredients in order in a large plastic bag that can be tightly sealed. Seal tightly and shake well. Marinate for at 4-8 hours, flipping the steaks occasionally. Remove the steaks from the refrigerator and let sit at room temperature for 25-30 minutes while preparing the grill. Drain and discard the marinade from the steaks. Grill over medium heat until a meat thermometer reaches about 140 degrees, or until the steaks reach your desired doneness, turning after 10 minutes. Remove from the grill and let rest on a cutting board or serving plate for five minutes before slicing and serving.

Makes 6 servings.
