  1. Remove fat from meat. Place meat in a ceramic bowl or plastic bag with vinegar, onion, rosemary and fennel. Let marinate for one hour.
  2. Drain and place on a hot grill or under a preheated broiler. Cook for 5 minutes per side for rare, longer for medium or well done (recommended minimum safe internal temperature is 145°F or medium rare).
