  2. Remove steak from bag; discard marinade. Place steak on rack of broiler pan so surface of beef is 2 to 3 inches from heat. Broil 13 to 18 minutes for medium rare (145°F) to medium (160°F) doneness, turning once.
  3. Meanwhile, cook onion and remaining 2/3 cup balsamic vinaigrette in medium saucepan over medium heat, uncovered, 8 to 10 minutes or until onion is tender. Remove from heat.
