The superstar of this dish is the the balsamic sauce – delicious goodness that’s equally savory and sweet. Oh yeah, the steak is pretty good, too.
Here is why this sauce will be added to my weekly dinner schedule:
- At any given time, I have all of its ingredients in my fridge/cabinet. AKA: No food store trips required.
- It’s a one pot sauce: just mix, stir, heat, stir, stir, stir…. 20 minutes later… done!
I served this with Easy Roasted Potatoes & Carrots, which was just enough veggies + starch.
There, you have it. Man-approved steak. Now educate yourself with the Finger Test to Check the Doneness of Meat and go and make this!
- 1.5 pound flank steak, trimmed of extra fat
- Cooking spray
- Salt and pepper
- Steak seasoning ( I used McCormick’s Steakhouse Seasoning Grinder)
- 2 teaspoons butter
- 2 tablespoons onion, finely chopped
- 1/4 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 teaspoons light brown sugar
- 1/4 cup beef broth
- Season the flank steak with salt, pepper and steak seasoning. Set aside.
- In a small pot over low heat, whisk the butter, finely chopped onion, balsamic, light brown sugar and beef broth.
- Simmer for about 20 minutes, stirring often until reduced to 1/4 cup.
- Meanwhile, either grill the flank steak to your liking or cook it on the stove (using a cooking spray on the pan first).
- Slice the steak into 1/4 inch pieces. Drizzle the balsamic sauce on top and serve immediately.
