Cooking Sequence  
•    Prepare steaks and onions; begin to marinate (10 minutes)
•    Prepare cookie pizza; begin to bake (10 minutes)
•    Complete steak and onions, then top cookie pizza; serve (30 minutes)


2 large red onions, sliced
1/4 cup molasses
1/4 cup reduced-sodium soy sauce
1/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons rice vinegar
1 tablespoon chipotle (or chili) powder
Large zip-top bag
1 1/2 lbboneless grilling steaks (such as ribeye, New York strip, or tenderloin)
1/2 teaspoon kosher salt

1.    Cut onions into 1-inch slices . Combine molasses, soy sauce, brown sugar, rice vinegar, and chipot le powder; whisk until blended. Place 1/2  of the marinade in zip-top bag and reserve remaining 1/2 for later use. Add steaks and onions to zip-top bag; knead to coat, then let stand 20 minutes (or overnight) to marinate.
2.    Preheat grill (or grill pan) on medium. Remove steaks and onions from bag (discard marinade); sprinkle with salt. Grill 3-4 minutes on each side or until onions are tender and grill-marked and steaks are 125°F (for medium rare; warm red center) , 130°F (for medium; warm pink center) , or up to 170°F (for well done). Let steaks stand 3 minutes to rest.
3.    Cut onions into bite-size pieces; toss with remaining 1/2 marinade. Slice steaks; serve topped with onions.
NOTE: The doneness temperatures for medium rare and medium stated above are traditional temperatures used for cooking steaks, but are not recommended by the USDA. To maintain food safety, the USDA recommends an internal temperature of 145°F, as measured using a food thermometer, with a 3-minute rest time before carving.
