Flank Steak with Caramelized Onions and Spaghetti with White Wine and Cherry Tomato Sauce

Where does time go? Do you ever wonder?! As years go by, it seems that time evades even more quickly from year to year… but this week seem to have been even faster than usual. My list of things kept getting longer and longer and my days seemed to run faster and faster…Having two computers crash also this week did not help either and that would explain why my blog entries have been so scarce. I have been cooking, but could not post anything.
This recipe is quick and easy to do. You may not even need to fix both. Having the Spaghetti as a main meal would suffice if you accompany it with a salad.

For the Flank steak recipe, you will need:
2 Tbsp of olive oil, 1 big red onion diced and chopped, 1/2 cup of honey, 1/2 cup of sherry wine. 1 whole flank steak filet, 2 tbsp of fresh oregano, 1 1/2 tsp of paprika.

For the pasta recipe you will need 12 oz of uncooked spaghetti, 2 cups of cherry tomatoes, 2 Tbsp of olive oil, 1 Tbsp of sugar, 1 red onion sliced and diced, 1 cup of white wine ( chardonnay), 1 cup of chicken broth, 1 tsp of flour, a pinch of crushed red pepper flake, 1 tsp of fresh oregano, thin slices of Parmigiano cheese.

In a frying pan, warm up 2 Tbsp of olive oil, saute the onions until they become golden and translucent, throw in the honey and the sherry wine and let it simmer slowly until the onions caramelize. Set aside while you prepare the rest of the meal.
For the Spaghetti, fill a big pot with water and bring to boil. When the water is boiling, throw in the spaghetti and cook 10 minutes until they become al dente.
While the spaghetti are cooking, warm up the oil, saute your onion until they become golden and translucent, throw in the flour and mix well until the flour has coated the onions, throw in the wine and the broth, stir well and bring to boil. Season with salt and pepper, add the sugar, 1 tsp of chopped oregano, the cherry tomatoes cut in half, (and the crushed red pepper flake if you want to). Let it simmer until the “sauce” is getting thicker.

For the meat, turn the grill to medium-high heat. In a small bowl, mix in 2 Tbsp of olive oil, 1 tsp of salt, 1 tsp of pepper, 1 tsp of paprika, 1 tbsp fresh oregano thinly chopped. Baste the filet with the marinade, and grill on the grill for 4 minutes on either side. Remove from the grill. Let it stand for 5 minutes before cutting in very thin slices.

Once the pasta are cooked, drain them. Place the pasta on plates and drizzle the tomato wine sauce over it. Add the cheese on top. Place the steak on the other corner of the plate and place the onions over it also. Enjoy!!!!
