As you all know, we are definitely carnivores, and we love all kinds of meat. Larry is from Kansas, and he is a meat and potatoes kind of guy at heart, steak being his favorite. So, we eat a lot of meat and a lot of steak. I love streak too, don’t get me wrong, but I like a wide variety of foods. That being said, because we eat a lot of steak, I am always looking for new ways of preparing it and/or topping it. This time I found a delicious recipe for an onion marmalade to to use as a steak topper. It would also be good on pork as well.
The steak itself, was leftover from a a previous meal. I know, surprise, surprise, right?! Me, eating and using leftovers. Who would have “thunk it” right? But this onion marmalade just really made the steak pop out. It was sweet and tart and tangy all at once, and very, very good too.
2 TBSP olive oil
3 medium red onions, sliced thin
1/4 cup sugar
1 1/2 TBSP garlic
1/3 cup red wine vinegar
1 TBSP fresh thyme leaves
1/4 cup water
salt or Kosher salt to taste
Over a medium-high flame, heat a skillet with the olive oil and add the onions and sugar. Cook for about 35-45 minutes, or until the onions are very brown and caramelized. Stir frequently to make sure the onions do not burn.
Once the onions are completely browned and tender, add the red wine vinegar, garlic, thyme, salt and water.
Continue to cook for an additional 3-5 minutes, or until the remaining liquid starts to thicken. Once the mixture has thickened, it is ready to serve on top of your favorite meats and enjoy. I served it all with some roasted potatoes and green beans, along with my cheesy-pepper bread. Cheese and Pepper Wreath and a smooth, but bold red blend. Delicious!
Stay happy, healthy and well Everyone. ‘Til next time.
