i love onions. i am obsessed with them. i love them raw in salads and on sandwiches, i love them cooked in stews, fried, and my new favorite, cooked in balsamic vinegar and honey.
there is a local place here that has the best hanger steak, i mean, melt in your mouth good. you don’t need a knife to cut into it it breaks apart with a fork. it’s your basic french bistro. it’s always busy and a great place to meet a big group of friends, or just to have a quick drink and an app.
back to that hanger steak. it is served with french fries and depending on the season, brussel sprouts or string beans. the best part, this little dollop of onions that rests beside the steak. they are sweet and mixed with the steak, just perfection. every time i leave there i say to e, i have to make that the next time i make steak but never remember till after we are done eating. this time i remembered, but only because i saw a recipe similar to what you find in that restaurant in a cooking light magazine.
i was able to take their basic recipe and take it one step further with the balsamic and garlic. not only did we devour the onions and the steak, i used what was left over for a beet and goat cheese tart (recipe tk).
so if your just having steak, or maybe you want to use these on a sandwich, or in a salad these are the most incredible onions ever.
