Ingredients
  • For the sauce:
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons unsalted butter
  • 1/2 medium onion, finely diced
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 cup ketchup
  • 1/2 cup molasses
  • 1/2 cup apple cider
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 cup lager-style beer
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons yellow mustard
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons cayenne pepper
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons paprika
  • For the steak and eggs:
  • 2 1 -pound strip steaks (1/2 inch thick)
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil
  • 4 grilled eggs (recipe below)
Directions

Make the sauce: In a medium saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter. Add the onion and garlic and saute until softened, about 3 minutes. Add the rest of the sauce ingredients; bring to a boil, then simmer until the sauce is reduced to 2 cups, about 30 minutes.

Meanwhile, preheat a grill to medium-high. Season the steaks with salt and pepper and rub with the oil. Grill for 3 to 5 minutes per side for medium-rare. Let rest for 10 minutes before slicing. Serve with the beer-molasses sauce and the grilled eggs.

Grilled Eggs:

Place a cast-iron skillet on the grill; add butter, oil or bacon drippings. Crack in eggs and season to taste (the Neelys use a blend of paprika, sugar and onion powder, plus salt and pepper). Cook until the edges are crisp but the yolks are still runny, 2-3 minutes.
