Skirt Steak with Caramelized Onions

Are you a steak lover?  Boy, do I love a good steak dinner, and I’ll never say no to a Ribeye or New York Strip.  But have you seen the price of beef lately?

So, I started looking at more economical cuts and found skirt steak on sale.  I remembered making these Italian Skirt Steak Rolls a while back, and they were quite good!

This time though, my inspiration came from the caramelized onions that I used to top my Gluten Free Focaccia Bread and decided to pair them with the steak.  The beef and onion flavors are amazing together, and it couldn’t have been easier to make.  The trick to tender skirt steak is not to overcook it.  Just a quick sear in a hot grill pan is all it needs!

Trim visible fat from the skirt steak and cut into 4 pieces.  Sprinkle both sides with salt, pepper, garlic granules, onion granules and paprika.  Let it sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.

Slice the onion into thin rings.  Heat 1 tbsp. butter and 1 tbsp. olive oil in a nonstick skillet.  Add the onions and cook over medium low heat, turning occasionally until brown and caramelized.  Remove from heat and set aside.

Whisk together the white wine, red wine vinegar and beef broth.

Heat remaining 1 tbsp. butter and 1 tbsp. olive oil in a grill pan.  Add the steak and cook 4 minutes per side over medium heat.  Check for doneness with a meat thermometer, the internal temperature should be 140º for medium.

Remove the steak to a serving dish and keep warm.  Transfer the cooked onions to the grill pan and deglaze with the wine/broth mixture.  Stir gently, until about half of the liquid has evaporated.

Top the steak with onions and drizzle with any remaining pan juices.

Notes ♪♫ This simple recipe comes together with just a handful of ingredients, proof that gluten free does not have to be complicated.  The skirt steak was SO good, I’ll definitely be making it again!
