I purchased grass-fed NY Strips from Fresh Market (which happened to be on sale, my favorite!). Buying good cuts of meat on sale, and freezing them, makes eating high quality foods affordable. I purchased a decent amount to freeze for future use, since I don't normally see grass-fed NY Strips on sale. I'm a firm believer in buying in bulk, it saves you money and time later down the road. Just make sure you wrap the meat well, so it doesn't get freezer burn.
My Dairy-Free friends - if you don't want to add the butter to the onions, that's fine, but it gives them a nice gloss and good flavor. I would recommend substituting it with a non-dairy butter, like coconut butter.
NY Strip w/ Sassy Onions
Cook Time: < 25 minutes
Prep Time: < 5 minutes
- 1 tsp olive oil
- 1 large sweet onion, sliced into 1/4 inch slices
- 3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 1/2 tsp dry mustard
- 1 tsp Worcestershire sauce
- 1 tsp organic butter
- salt and pepper, to taste
- 1 lb of grass-fed NY Strip Steak, cut into 4 - 1 inch thick
Heat the oil over medium heat in a large skillet.
Season the NY Strip with salt, pepper and 1/2 tsp of Worcestershire on both sides. Let the meat absorb the flavors while you cook the onions.
Add the onion to the heated skillet and saute for about 5 minutes. Then add the garlic, dry mustard and 1/2 tsp of Worcestershire. Saute for another 5 minutes or until the onions are starting to slightly brown and are real soft. Add the butter to the pan, salt & pepper and coat the onions well. Remove the onions from the pan, and set aside.
Add the seasoned NY Strip to the skillet and let it cook for about 4 minutes on one side or until a nice brown crust has formed. Flip and cook for 4 minutes on the other side.
Add the onions on top of the steaks and cover the pan. Reduce the heat to low and allow the meat to cook to desired done-ness (about 4 more minutes to medium or longer for a more well done steak).
Serve the steaks with the onions on top.
