Steaks with Peppery Onions

Teresa Ambra

Gluten Free Living – 2024

I think this is my new favorite way to cook steak! Steaks with Peppery Onions is a phenomenal recipe! It uses only a handful of ingredients but it’s so rich on flavor and deliciousness. I Love grilled onions and garlic anyway, but add them on top of a steak and I’m in seventh heaven. 🙂

I’ve been going through my old Taste of Home Cookbooks and recording recipes that I want to try out. (I’ve got thousands now!) Many of the healthier recipes (like this one) are strictly for me! We do a lot of grilling so we’ve been grilling a lot of meat, veggies and fruit. And it’s just so very easy. Other recipes I make for company or as meals for other families. I have been trying to make a few new recipes every week. I have really enjoyed many of these great family favorite recipes and others have too.

We grilled and made several things the day I made Steaks with Peppery Onions. We also made Steaks with a Savory Steak Rub, Herbed Broccoli (which we grilled), Garlic Parmesan Asparagus (also on the grill), along with Rutabaga Fries (in the oven) (which was fantastic and tasted like Sweet Potato Fries), and Garlic Mashed Turnips (on the stovetop) (and one of my new faves!) We also grilled peaches which was my dessert for the week.

It does take a little work converting a regular recipe to using the grill, but I’ve really wanted to try more veggies on the grill. For this recipe, however, we grilled the steaks and then sautĂ©ed the onions in a skillet and added them on top later. I was a little concerned initially about using a full teaspoon of black pepper when cooking the onions, but truthfully, I thought they turned out wonderfully well. You can always lower the amount if you desire, but I thought the onions were delightfully seasoned and just right as written.

If you’re looking for easy week-night dinner recipes, it doesn’t get any easier than this! Add some corn-on-the-cob and grill away! If you enjoy garlic and onions for flavor and texture, this is a terrific way to get these healthy veggies into your diet. In addition to being healthy and gluten free, this is a Keto-friendly recipe too. Enjoy!
