Dee Faulding of Santa Barbara, California brings zest to the meal with this recipe. The name couldn't be more fitting as skillet-cooked ribeyes get a burst of flavor from caramelized onions seasoned with black pepper, garlic and salt.

  • 3 medium onions, sliced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 teaspoon minced garlic
  • 4 beef ribeye steaks (6 ounces each)


  1. In a large skillet over medium heat, cook the onions, salt and pepper in oil and butter for 15-20 minutes or until onions are golden brown, stirring frequently. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer.
  2. Meanwhile, broil steaks 3-4 in. from the heat for 6-8 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Serve with onion mixture. Yield: 4 servings.

"This was incredibly easy to make and tasted amazing. I am not that great at grilling so I appreciate that this recipe uses the broiler."

"It is a good thing that I did not put the peppery onions on top of the steak. My family really disliked them - way too much pepper and salt. But it did smell good"
