Substitute for brandy?

juliejulez | Mar 4, 2013 10:06 AM

So I'd like to try my hand at this recipe, since I have some venison steaks hanging out in the freezer:

But, I do not have brandy, and I'd rather not go through the expense to buy it right now just for 2 tbsp worth (might even be less as I might half the recipe). Looks like it's just used for caramelizing the onions.

So, are there any good substitutions for brandy? I have a large variety of different vinegars, wine, stocks etc.
