Grilled Rib Eye Steaks with Caramelized Onions and Blue CheeseIngredients:
  • 4 rib eye steaks
  • Olive oil
  • Salt and pepper
  • 2 T butter
  • 2 sweet yellow onions – halved and sliced into 1/4” slices
  • 1 T fresh thyme
  • 1 tsp honey
  • 2 tsp balsamic vinegar
  • 1 blue cheese wedge – room temperature

Brush steaks with olive oil, sprinkle with salt and pepper and set aside one hour before grilling. Allow 30+ minutes to caramelize onions. In a saute pan over low to medium heat, melt butter, 2 T olive oil and sliced onions, thyme, a pinch of salt and stir occasionally. After about 30 minutes, add honey and balsamic vinegar and cook for about 5 more minutes. Spoon onions into a bowl and set aside. Slice blue cheese and set aside.

Heat grill to medium high and brush grates with oil. Grill steaks for 5-10 minutes per side. Internal temperature for medium rare is 125 degrees. Let steaks rest for 5-8 minutes.

Place rib eye steaks on a platter or individual plates, spoon over caramelized onions and top with a slice of blue cheese. Serve immediately. Serves 4.

Tip: Don't cook the onions too fast. You want them carmalized, not heavily browned. 

Serve with:
