    SusieQusie's Note:

    Balsamic vinegar helps to brown the onions and enhances the flavor of a quick pan sauce. This works best with steaks 1 - 1 1/4 inches thick. Cooking time given yields a medium rare steak. Recipe found in Cook's Country.

      Awesome recipe. I also used dried rosemary but imagine the fresh is even better! I also added mushrooms to the onions. Delicious and will definitely be making again!
