Delicious! We loved the flavor that this quick and easy marinade gave to the meat. I ended up marinating the meat for about 7 hours and grilled it on the barbeque until medium-rare and it turned out perfect. I didn't make the reserved onion mixture for serving over the meat when done, I didn't think that it needed it. My family loved this and gave it 2-thumbs up. Thank you for sharing this wonderful recipe...it is definitely a keeper.
