Recipe Ingredients for Seared Steaks with Caramelized Onions & Gorgonzola

2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
4 cups (2 large) onions, sliced
1 tablespoon brown sugar
118 g (1/2 cup) reduced sodium beef broth (102617)
1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar (2069)
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
14 ounces, net from 1 pound raw top sirloin steak (13455) or beef tenderloin, 1-1 1/4 inches thick, trimmed and cut into 4 steaks
1/4 cup crumbled blue cheese or Gorgonzola

Recipe Directions for Seared Steaks with Caramelized Onions & Gorgonzola

  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.
