Smothered Skirt Steal

Dinner's for a Year

Smothered Skirt Steak

serves 4

2 large onions, about 6 cups sliced in 1/2 inch rings
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
3 garlic cloves, chopped
kosher salt and pepper
1/3 cup beef broth
1 cup packed mozzarella cheese, shredded
2 teaspoons fresh thyme
about 1 and 1/2 - 2 pounds of skirt steak

Heat a large saute pan to medium high and add olive oil and butter. As soon as the butter starts to sizzle, add the onions and toss to coat. Sprinkle with about 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Turn heat to medium, add the garlic and saute the onions, stirring occasionally, for 15 - 20 minutes or until soft and lightly browned. Add the beef stock and cook for an additional 3 - 4 minutes or until most of the liquid is evaporates. Stir in the cheese and thyme and season to taste with additional salt and pepper. Keep warm while the steaks grill.

Rub the steaks with olive oil and sprinkle with salt and pepper. Grill steaks for about 3 minutes per side for medium rare. Remove from grill and let rest about 5 minutes before slicing. Serve with a generous helping of smothered onions.

Quick,easy and yummy
