Tonight we made a recipe that I forgot about until Justin said he wanted a steak meal, and I started looking through my recipes and found this one. We made it once before, and it was really good. I am not big on steaks, so we don’t have it very often. It’s also too chewy for the boys to eat right now. So when we do have it, Justin eats his entire steak! No leftovers for lunch the next day. I couldn’t even eat half of mine and saved the rest for later, but he ate it all!
The French Onion Steak recipe is pretty easy to make and doesn’t require too many ingredients either. Depending on how cooked you like your steak determines how long this recipe takes to make. Justin likes his steak cooked medium, so I took his off the pan and let mine cook a few minutes more since I like it cooked closer to medium-well. But that’s what’s great about this meal too, I can customize it to how we each like it. And the broth is really good with some mashed potatoes as a side.
I always cook this meal on the stovetop, but you could probably change it to be able to grill. We haven’t tried that yet, but if we did I would do a few things different. Instead of cooking the broth, I would use the broth as a marinade and let the steaks sit in that for a couple hours. When it comes time to grill, I would use the onion soup mix as a rub for the steak. And maybe sprinkle more on while it cooks as well. Then once the steaks are cooked, you could top it with the cheese and french fried onions.
