Steak with Shallots

I love onions and shallots (french onions) and use them often in various dishes. This makes for a easy and quick dish that tastes great.


  • Sirloin steak (although any steak will do)
  • Olive oil
  • Butter (optional, use olive oil instead)
  • 2-5 garlic cloves
  • Oregano
  • Pepper
  • Salt


  • Peel and chop all shallots (minimum 1 shallot per steak)
  • In an iron black pan at medium heat drop 1/2 tablespoon of butter
  • The butter should turn brown and melt very quickly so add the steak to the pan
  • Cook the steak on medium-high heat, each side for 2-3 minutes or depending on thickness
  • Once the steak is cooked, remove quickly, place it on a plate and cover it so it stays warm
  • Add another 1/2 tablespoon of butter to the pan
  • Add several tablespoons of red wine vinegar (or red wine)
  • Then toss in the chopped shallots and stir them in the pan (should only take a minute to heat up)
  • Add the shallots on top of the steak along with any natural sauce from the pan and serve
