Add beef and onions to marinade; turn to coat with marinade. Cover dish or seal bag; refrigerate, turning beef occasionally, at least 8 hours but no longer than 24 hours.

Expert Tips

  • Tip 1
    Substitution: For a special occasion, individual beef tenderloins (about 4 oz/250 g each) can be substituted for the boneless beef sirloin. Grill about 10 to 15 minutes for medium doneness.
  • Tip 2
    Did You Know: Dry red wines, such as Cabernet, Merlot, Pinot Noir and Zinfandel can be used in this marinade.
