Step 1

Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a 12" skillet over medium-high heat. Add onions and salt; cook until golden, 12 to 15 minutes. Add vinegar and bring to a boil; reduce by half, 3 to 5 minutes. Add stock and cook until liquid is reduced and thickened, about 15 minutes. Remove from heat and stir in remaining butter and cracked peppercorns until butter is melted; set sauce aside and keep warm.

Heat a charcoal grill or set a gas grill to high. (Alternatively, heat a cast-iron grill pan over medium-high heat.) Brush turkey with oil and season with salt and freshly ground black pepper. Grill, flipping once, until browned and cooked through, 3 to 4 minutes. Transfer to a serving platter and drizzle with ½ cup reserved sauce; serve with remaining sauce on the side.
