Expert Tips

  • Don't be in a rush to caramelize the onions. Cooking them longer over medium heat brings out their natural sweetness and helps to avoid burning.
  • To broil steak, place steak on broiler pan. Broil with top about 4 inches from heat 4 1/2 minutes per side for medium rare or until desired doneness. Transfer steak to cutting board; let rest 10 minutes.
  • If you’re in the mood to splurge, try using New York strip steak in place of the flank steak. Don’t be in a rush to caramelize the onions. Cooking them longer over medium heat brings out their natural sweetness and helps to avoid burning.
