“Another recipe I modified from a Cooking Light magazine. A very simple, yet flavorful steak recipe. I love the tangy flavor of the balsamic and onions. Enjoy!”

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 34 cup balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 6 cups onions, vertically sliced
  • 12 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 lb steak, trimmed (flank or round)
  • 14 teaspoon pepper, freshly ground
  • 14 teaspoon dried thyme
  • cooking spray


  1. Put vinegar into a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium and cook until you are left with about 1/4 cup (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat.
  2. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over a medium-high heat. Add onion and saute for 10 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle 1/4 teaspoon of sea salt over the onions and saute 18 more minutes or until onions become a golden brown. Be careful not to burn.
  3. Preheat broiler.
  4. Use the remaining salt, pepper and thyme to sprinkle over the steak. Coat broiler pan with cooking spray and place steak upon it; broil for approximately 5 minutes per side (adjust cooking time to get the steak to your preferred degree of doneness).
  5. Cut the steak across the grain diagonally into thin slices.
  6. Place strips of steak on top of caramelized onion and drizzle with the balsamic glaze.
  7. Serve with shiraz (syrah) wine to accentuate the meal.
