Seared Steaks With Caramelized Onions & Gorgonzola

Seared Steaks With Caramelized Onions & Gorgonzola
This Recipe Is:

WebMD Recipe from EatingWell.com

In our humble opinion, steak is best topped with sweet caramelized onions and salty Gorgonzola cheese. We recommend seeking out good-quality Gorgonzola for the best flavor, but any will work. Serve with garlic mashed potatoes and steamed carrots.

Ingredients
Prep: 30 | Total Time: 30
  • 2 tablespoons
    canola oil, divided
  • 2 large
    onions, sliced (about 4 cups)
  • 1 tablespoon
    brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup
    reduced-sodium beef broth
  • 1 tablespoon
    balsamic vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon
    salt, divided
  • 1/4 teaspoon
    freshly ground pepper
  • 1 pound
    beef tenderloin (filet mignon), or sirloin steak, 1-1 1/4 inches thick, trimmed and cut into 4 steaks
  • 1/4 cup
    crumbled Gorgonzola, or blue cheese
Instructions
  1. Heat 1 tablespoon oil over medium heat in a large skillet. Add onions and brown sugar and cook, stirring often, until the onions are very tender and golden brown, about 15 minutes. Add broth, vinegar and 1/4 teaspoon salt and cook, stirring, until the liquid has almost evaporated, 3 to 4 minutes more. Transfer the onions to a bowl; cover to keep warm. Clean and dry the pan.
  2. Sprinkle the remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and pepper on both sides of each steak. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the pan over medium-high heat. Add the steaks and cook until browned, 3 to 5 minutes. Turn them over and top with cheese. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover and cook until the cheese is melted and the steaks are cooked to desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare. Serve the steaks with the caramelized onions.
