French Onion Rib Eye Steak

French Onion Rib Eye Steak

Ingredients: 1/2 teaspoon each kosher or coarse salt, cracked pepper, dried onion flakes, and dried garlic flakes,1/2 cup fat-skimmed beef broth,1 teaspoon olive oil,French onions,1 fat-trimmed beef rib eye steak (cut 2 in. thick, 1 1/4 to 1 1/2 lb.),1/2 cup shredded gruyère or Swiss cheese


  1. Rinse beef steak and pat dry. Pat salt, pepper, onion flakes, and garlic flakes evenly onto meat.
  2. Pour olive oil into an 8- to 10-inch ovenproof nonstick frying pan over high heat; tilt to coat pan bottom. When 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 in pan accumulates, wipe out with paper towels.
  3. Put pan with steak in a 400 regular or convection oven and bake until meat is done to your taste (cut to test), 8 to 12 minutes for rare or about 25 minutes for well done.
  4. Turn oven heat to broil.
  5. Remove pan and wipe out fat with a paper towel. Mound French onions onto meat and sprinkle with cheese. Broil in pan about 6 inches from heat until cheese is bubbling and beginning to brown, 3 to 4 minutes.
  6. Remove pan from oven and pour broth around meat, stirring to release browned bits.
  7. Leave meat in pan or use a wide spatula to transfer steak and onions to a warm rimmed platter (pour juices around meat). To serve, cut meat and onions into 4 equal portions; set each on a rimmed plate and spoon juices around meat.
