Garlic Butter Steak with Cider Caramelized Onions

A romantic dinner staple. Steak and onions, yum! This recipe is a great way to start off February. This is such a classic, and loved by almost everyone; but now it's topped with beautifully cider-kissed caramelized onions. These beauties taste amazing on so many different things! So versatile! Try it on pizza, burgers, flat breads and more!!

If you had to choose: Ribeye or Filet Mignon?




2 16oz Ribeye Steaks (try to get 1½ - 2 inches thick)

2 tbsp butter

½ tsp salt

¼ tsp black pepper



Caramelized Onions

2 tbsp butter

2-3 onions, thinly sliced

¼ cup hard cider (Recommended: Hey Sugar)

½ tsp salt


Start by melting the butter in a skillet, add the onions and salt. Stir gently to coat the onions with the butter. Cook on medium/high heat and stirring often until the onions turn brown/blonde in colour.

Once they've turned in colour, add the cider and scrape the pan to get the browning bits off the bottom, reduce the heat to medium, cover skillet and continue to cook till onions turn brown (Preheat oven to 500 degrees for Ribeye).

Once they turn brown, take lid off and cook until the liquid reduces. This is a great time to start the ribeye.

In a skillet melt the butter, and rub the salt and pepper onto all the sides of the ribeye steaks. Once they have the salt and pepper, add the steaks to the hot skillet and sear the edges for about 30 - 35 seconds each side and the edges.

Add the thyme and rosemary to the pan and spoon the butter over the steaks.

Once the steaks have been basted, put the entire skillet with the steaks into the oven and cook for 5 - 6 minutes (Medium rare = 145 degrees) take out of oven and let the steaks rest for 5 - 10 minutes. Slice and plate, and add the beautiful caramelized onions on top, serve and enjoy!


Pro-tip: Try adding nutmeg to the caramelized onions to add a delicious slightly sweet, earthy taste and a burst of flavour.
