1.In blender, purée garlic, chipotle, lime juice, cilantro, oil, sugar, 1/2 teaspoon each salt and black pepper, and cumin. Makes about 1-1/4 cups marinade.
2.Reserve 3/4 cup marinade. Place steak in large zip-top plastic bag; pour remaining marinade over steak. Seal bag, pressing out any excess air; refrigerate at least 30 minutes or up to 8 hours.
3.Remove steak from marinade; discard marinade. Pat steak dry with paper towel; sprinkle with remaining 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Let stand at room temperature 30 minutes; soak skewers in water for 20 minutes.
4.Prepare outdoor grill for direct grilling over medium-high heat. Place steak on hot grill rack; cover and cook 10 minutes or until internal temperature reaches 140° for medium-rare, turning once. Transfer steak to cutting board; tent with aluminum foil and let stand 10 minutes. (Internal temperature will rise 5 to 10° upon standing.)
5.Thread onion slices onto skewers; spray onion and tomatoes with nonstick cooking spray. Place onion skewers and tomatoes on hot grill rack; cover and cook 7 minutes or until grill marks appear, turning once.
6.Remove bone from steak; slice against the grain. Separate onion slices and chop tomatoes; serve steak with onion, tomatoes and reserved marinade for dipping
