These shallots are a wonderful make-ahead topping for Grilled Top Sirloin. Any leftover braised shallots will make a wonderful topping for bruschetta or sandwiches.
Make Ahead Tips
You can braise the shallots up to three days in advance. Refrigerate, covered, until ready to use, and let them come to room temperature before serving.

I'm glad I checked to see if there was anything to add interest to the sirloin steak I was going to grill. Overnight with salt in the frig really brought out the flavor,though, next time I'll use slightly less. BUT.....the real discovery was the braised shallots! What a great 'added interest' that is for the steak! Cook more of everything, because for a Sunday night supper I made panini for us out of a good baguette, split, brushed with olive oil, and layered with the shallot braise, very rare sirloin and a bit of grated cheese (gruyere reserve). Yum!!
