Need an amazing Father’s Day dinner that won’t keep you in the kitchen all day? This Strip Steak with Onion sauce is just what you’re looking for.
Steak. Nothing says guy food like a big juicy steak.
Caramelized onions are one of my favorite toppings, so are these mushrooms…but then I found a recipe for onion sauce. Onion sauce? I had to check it out. This onion sauce is sort of like caramelized onions…but better.
The onions are cooked down in the same way, low and slow, but these onions get some white wine and cream to make it more of a sauce than just caramelized onions. And trust me when I say that it’s worth the half and hour it takes to make these.
You can do the onions ahead and then just grill up your steak at dinner time. More time to spend with Dad that way.
Start our by cooking down a whole bunch of sliced onions with some time and a bay leaf.
After about 25 minutes they’ll look like this…
Next add white wine, beef broth and cream to make the sauce, then you can let it hang out until your ready to grill your steaks.
We had these amazing looking strip steaks but you could substitute any cut of steak you like. Grill them for a few minutes on each side for a nice, medium rare and then slice them up and spoon that onion sauce all over the tops.
Serve these steaks up with a couple of glasses of good whiskey and you’ll have a meal he won’t forget!Print
