Got onions?

The weather is starting to change.  We’re heading into fall – my favorite season!  Temps are still in the low 80s here, but are predicted to drop to the 60s by the end of the week.  And I’m not complaining 🙂

Naturally, we’re still grilling, which is great because it makes for easy and delicious dinners.  Like steak.  A nice piece of meat with salt and pepper sprinkled on both sides.  A few minutes on both sides and boom – you’re done.

Once in a while, though, you want a little something else.  Something to dress it up a bit.  A while back I posted this amazing recipe for chimichurri.  I’ll never get tired of it.  But, I also never get tired of onions.

The beauty of these is that they’ll be done in the amount of time it takes to cook your steak, or they can be made in advance.  And, they’re ridiculously easy.

So, the next time you’re looking for a great condiment for your steak, put down (or better yet, throw out) the A1, and whip up a pan of this deliciousness.

Grilled Sirloin Steak with Balsamic Onions
inspired by Stacey Snacks

boneless sirloin steak
salt and pepper
red cippolini onions
extra virgin olive oil
white balsamic vinegar

While grill is heating, add salt and pepper to both sides of steak.  Add to grill, then cook according to your liking.  I do about 2-3 minutes per side for rare to medium-rare.  Remove from grill and let steak rest for about 5 minutes before eating.

While steak is cooking, heat a small skillet and add a few drops of oil.  Add red cippolini onions to the pan and cook them down until soft.  Add a few splashes of vinegar, stir, and remove from pan.

Place onions on top of (or next to) steak and serve.

    Autumn grilling is so tasty — must be the cooler air — but I’d make (and eat) those onions anytime!
