DIRECTIONS

  • For French Onions: In a 10-inch frying pan, combine onion, butter and sugar.
  • Stir often over medium-high heat until onion is lightly browned, about 12 minutes.
  • Add flour and mix well.
  • Stir in beef broth and milk.
  • Stir over high heat until boiling.
  • Continue to boil, stirring constantly, until liquid is almost evaporated, 4 to 5 minutes.
  • Remove from heat and stir in 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese and shredded Parmesan Cheese.
  • Add salt and pepper to taste. (Makes about 1 cup).
  • Rinse steak and pat dry.
  • Pat salt, pepper and garlic flakes evenly onto meat.
  • Preheat oven to 400°F.
  • Pour oil in 10-inch non-stick pan and heat over high heat (tilt to cover bottom of pan with oil).
  • When oil is hot, add steak and brown on both sides, about 4 minutes total.
  • Supporting meat with tongs, tip steak onto its edge and rotate to brown lightly, about 2 minutes total.
  • As fat accumulates in pan, wipe it out with paper towels.
  • Put steak on oven-safe plate and bake in 400°F oven until meat is done to your liking, 8 to 12 minutes for rare or about 20 minutes for well done.
  • Remove plate from oven.
  • Turn oven heat to broil.
  • Remove fat from plate with a paper towel.
  • Mound French onions on meat and sprinkle with 1/2 cup shredded Swiss cheese.
  • Broil in pan about 6 inches from heat until cheese bubbles and begins to brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
  • Remove pan from oven and pour broth around meat, stirring to release browned bits.
  • To serve, cut meat and onions into 4 equal portions.
  • Transfer to individual plates and spoon juices around meat.
