Chef Mike prepares a wonderful Steak and Ale with Caramelized Onions and serves it with a Blue Point Toasted Lager.
2 New York strip steaks
Salt and pepper to taste
2 tablespoons olive oil, separated
1 medium white onion, sliced thin
1 cup lager beer
1 tablespoon butter
Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat for 2 minutes. In the meantime, season the steaks with the salt and pepper.
Place 1 Tbsp. of the oil in the skillet and add the seasoned steak. Sear 2 minutes per side. Reduce the heat to medium-low and continue to cook steak; turning every minute until done to your liking. Remove the steak and place on serving plates.
Add 1 Tbsp. oil to the same skillet over medium-high heat and add the sliced onions. Sauté the onions until caramelized (about 4 minutes). Add beer and simmer until liquid is reduced by 75%. Add the butter and swirl pan until melted. Serve onion over the steak.
