How to Make Steak and Onions, Austrian Style
- Heat butter and oil in a wide frying pan over medium-low heat. Add onion and garlic and cook, stirring occasionally, until onion is limp and golden (about 30 minutes). Increase heat to brown onion slightly; remove from pan.
- Meanwhile, sprinkle steaks with salt and pepper. In same pan, over high heat, brown steak quickly on both sides adding a little more butter and oil, if needed; cook until meat is done to your liking (about 2 1/2 minutes on each side for rare). Remove to a warm platter.
- Add vermouth to pan; heat quickly to reduce liquid slightly, stirring up browned bits from pan. Reduce heat, stir in onion, and heat thoroughly. Spoon onion mixture over steak. Sprinkle with parsley, if desired.
