New York Strip with Caramelized Onions

Serves 1 hungry boyfriend in 30 minutes


  • 3 tablespoons unsalted butter, divided
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 large onions, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1 teaspoon anchovy paste
  • salt and pepper
  • 1 New York strip steak
1.  Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.  Melt 2 tablespoons of butter with oil in a large skillet over medium heat.  Add onions tossing in butter and oil.  Add thyme, anchovy paste, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper.  Cook for 20-30 minutes stirring occasionally until onions are caramelized.

2.  Meanwhile heat a cast iron skillet over medium-high heat*.  Brush both sides of steak with canola oil and season with salt and pepper.  Add steak and cook for about 3 minutes.  Flip over and immediately place 1 tablespoon of butter on top of the steak.  Transfer skillet to the oven.  Cook for 5 minutes until steak is medium rare (see meat temperature guide).  Transfer to a plate covering loosely with foil.  Allow to rest for 2 minutes.

*Make sure skillet is hot before you add steak to ensure a good sear.
