  • ⅓ cup molasses
  • 2 tablespoons spicy brown mustard
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 tablespoon water
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • ¼ teaspoon caraway seeds, crushed
  • ½ teaspoon freshly ground pepper, divided

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Trim fat from steak. Score both sides of steak in a diamond pattern by making shallow diagonal cuts at 1-inch intervals. Place steak in a large self-sealing plastic bag. Whisk together molasses, mustard, 1 tablespoon of the oil, the water, garlic, caraway seeds, ¼ teaspoon of the pepper and ⅛ teaspoon salt in a small bowl. Add to bag with steak. Seal bag and turn to coat steak with marinade. Marinate steak in the refrigerator for 4 to 24 hours, turning bag occasionally.
  2. Remove from the refrigerator 15 minutes before cooking. Drain steak, discarding marinade. Lightly coat tomato and onion slices with cooking spray.
  3. For a charcoal or gas grill, place steak, tomato and onion slices on the rack of a covered grill directly over medium coals. Grill tomato slices for 4 to 6 minutes or until just browned, turning once. Grill onion slices 8 to 10 minutes or until just tender, turning once. Grill steak for 15 to 18 minutes for medium doneness (160°F), turning once halfway through grilling.
  4. Transfer steak to a cutting board; cover with foil and let stand for 10 minutes. Thinly slice steak across the grain.
  5. To serve, divide tomato and onion slices among four serving plates. Sprinkle with remaining ¼ teaspoon salt and remaining ¼ teaspoon pepper. Drizzle with remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. Serve with lemon wedges to squeeze over vegetables. Serve with sliced steak.
