      We really enjoyed this recipe. When I was sauteeing the onions I added about 1 tsp basalmic vinager, because I always add that into my french onion soup. The only thing I didn't like was because the cheese covered the whole top of the steak I couldn't see where the fat was to cut around it. Next time I will use a leaner cut of meat so I don't run into this problem. Thanks!
