  • 2 lb. of flank steak salt and pepper

For the Marinade

  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons sherry
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
  • 3 tablespoons brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder

For Caramelized Onions

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 large onions sliced into thin rounds
  • 2 teaspoons brown sugar
  • 5 tablespoons chicken stock


  • Not a lot of prep for this grilled steak and caramelized onions recipe. Just be sure to have all the ingredients on hand and ready to go. Peel and slice the onions and make or defrost the chicken stock.

Marinated Steak

  • Mix the marinated ingredients together in a large, shallow glass bowl. Remove ¼ of the marinade and reserve for basting.
  • Gently score the flank steak and add to the marinade, cover, and let sit at room temperature for 1-2 hours or refrigerate if marinating longer.
  • Fire up your grill and when it's ready remove the steak from the marinade and grill for about 5 minutes per side.
  • Discard the marinade and use the reserve marinade to baste.

Caramelized Onions

  • Heat the butter and oil in a heavy bottomed pan until they are almost smoking hot. Add the onions and sauté until translucent ...approximately 10 to 15 minutes.
  • Add the brown sugar and stock, season with salt and pepper, reduce heat and simmer until all the liquid is absorbed.

To Serve

  • Slice steak into ¼ inch pieces, top with onions and serve. Of course a hearty red wine goes great with this meal as well as side dishes like roasted potatoes and grilled veggies.
