Flank Steak with Caramelized Onions and Balsamic Glaze

I have so many darn recipes that I don’t know what to do with them? Right now I have them all in binders and well I have so many recipes that I have so many binders and well I am running out of room. I have tabs for them all, but then I find new recipes and I am supposed to put them under the tabs I have made as I print them out to help keep them organized but that doesn’t happen. I have recipes I go too for when I am not in the mood to make something new, or have a craving for, there are The Pioneer Woman Recipes (They are my favorite) so I decided they needed their own binder. Then I have recipes I have already made and don’t want to put them in the binder of recipes I want to make. You see my delema! So this past weekend, I started going through my recipes:
Sorting recipes



I didn’t get very far. I had to stop and make dinner, then after that I wanted to watch a movie and I was sick of sorting recipes…People always tell me I should just save them online, so I don’t have all the papers. Well I like the papers. I like to see in front of me (not on a screen) how many I have made and how many I want to make. Plus I can’t put my computer in the recipe holder thingy my mom got me for when I am cooking, and I am not looking at them on my I phone, I am clumsy, I would spill something on my phone or drop it…so paper it is!

so I will just keep them in binders or scattered all over our apt…(works for me)

So today was in National Drink Wine Day! So I made sure to have me a glass or two…

I also made some steak with onions! YUM! I LOVE Onions!

When I was a teenager, and I still lived at home I would cut up a whole onion and bell pepper and saute it in a skillet. I would pretend that I had my own cooking show and I would cut up the onions and Green Bell peppers and saute them and add salt and pepper. I would carmalize them and then I would eat them as is. Loved it! My mom didn’t like it very much, because she would come home from work and say you made onions today didn’t you. She said she could smell it as soon as she walked in the house. She didn’t like the smell. Told her I was cooking on my show, and we made onions today…


2/3 cup balsamic vinegar
1 tablespoon olive oil
6 cups vertically sliced onion (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/2 teaspoon salt, divided
1 (1-pound) flank steak, trimmed
1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
Cooking spray

Bring balsamic vinegar to a boil in a small, heavy saucepan. Reduce heat to medium; cook until reduced to 1/4 cup (about 5 minutes). Remove from heat.

Heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add onion,

and sauté 10 minutes or until tender. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon salt; sauté 18 minutes or until onions are golden brown. Remove from heat.
Preheat broiler.

Sprinkle steak with remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt, pepper, and thyme. Place steak on a broiler pan coated with cooking spray; broil 6 minutes on each side or until desired degree of doneness.

Cut steak diagonally across grain into thin slices. Serve steak over onions; drizzle with balsamic glaze.
