A New York Steak of Mind

Every once in a while you just want a great steak. Here is a simple recipe, with basic ingredients that you probably have, that come together to make a fantastic steak for that once in a while occassion.

1/4 cup Cider Vinegar
2 tbsp. Sesame Oil
2 tbsp. Soy Sauce
1/2 cup Ketchup
4 tbsp. White Granulated Sugar
3 tbsp. Teriyaki sauce
1/2 cup Chopped onions
1/2 stick butter
1/4 cup Wine/licqeur (Cointreau)

  • Directions:
  • Salt and Pepper the New York steaks on both sides.
  • Add a little ground thyme
  • Put on a rack for 15 minutes at 250 degrees (this will make the steak much juicier, since it will later cook in the pan, faster and more even)
  • Sear with butter in a skillet both sides until evenly brown, approx. 2 minutes each side at medium heat
  • Take out the steak, let it rest
  • Caramelize the onions in the same pan with brown butter
  • Add the rest of the ingredients and reduce the sauce for approx. 10 minutes.
  • Drizzle over the steak and serve

Then get a nice big steak knife and dig in!
(A good combination to this is some fried rice and sauteed squash, as you see above).
