Recipe by EdsGirlAngie
READY IN: 20mins




  • 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).
  • If this isn't your style, just push the garlic slices in with your finger.
  • In about 1-1/2 tablespoons of butter, fry each steak for 3 to 4 minutes, turning once.
  • Remove to a dish and reserve.
  • To the skillet add the other 1-1/2 tablespoon butter and the sliced onion.
  • Saute until onion is golden, then transfer onions to the same dish as the steaks and reserve.
  • 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--).
  • 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.
  • Serve steaks and onions on warmed crusty sandwich rolls.
