To make the condiment: In a large saucepan over medium heat, melt the butter and cook the onion, stirring gently, until caramelized, about 5 to 6 minutes. Remove the onions and set aside. Pour in the sherry and cook and stir over medium heat to scrape up the browned bits on the bottom of the pan. Add the rosemary and stock and cook over medium heat to reduce to a glaze, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the peaches, pineapple, onions, salt, and pepper. Cook 2 to 3 minutes, or until the fruit is heated through. Set aside.
To make the paste: Press the pulp out of the garlic cloves and mix it with the other ingredients.
Spread the paste over the T-bones and let stand at room temperature for 45 minutes. Grill over hot coals for 8 minutes per side for medium-rare.
To serve: Place two T-bones on each plate. Serve the condiment alongside.
