    EdsGirlAngie's Note:

    These steaks flavored with onions and red wine are called garlic "nailed" steaks because a small meat mallet is typically used to "nail" the garlic slices into the steak. If you like drama, go for it, but I usually just push the garlic in with my finger - it doesn't really stay in too well anyway. Regardless, this is an awesome way to enjoy your next steak sandwich. They're quick, satisfying and totally delicious.

    Units: US | Metric


    1. 1
      Lay out steaks on a work surface and to be traditional,"nail" the garlic slices into the steak on both sides (about a clove per steak, more if you like).
    2. 2
      If this isn't your style, just push the garlic slices in with your finger.
    3. 3
      In about 1-1/2 tablespoons of butter, fry each steak for 3 to 4 minutes, turning once.
    4. 4
      Remove to a dish and reserve.
    5. 5
      To the skillet add the other 1-1/2 tablespoon butter and the sliced onion.
    6. 6
      Saute until onion is golden, then transfer onions to the same dish as the steaks and reserve.
    7. 7
      Pour the red wine into the skillet used to cook the steaks and onions; scrape up the browned bits and simmer over medium-high heat until liquid is reduced by about half (this doesn't take too long--).
    8. 8
      Return the steaks and onions to this skillet, season with salt and pepper, and cook another minute on both sides of steaks, until warmed through.
    9. 9
      Serve steaks and onions on warmed crusty sandwich rolls.

      Very good. I followed the instructions exactly. It was easy to put together and the meat was very flavorful, probably due to the wine.
