Pan-Seared Sirloin Patty with Caramelized Onion and Cream Reduction

It was 6:30 when I was making my way home. I called home to check on everyone and to ask about dinner. Instead of a dinner suggestion, I was told to get some pizza so as to have dinner ready as soon as I got home and also as not to let me cook since it was already late. Though it  was nice of my husband to suggest that I do, I was not going to do that, you know me better. Instead I was going to get something easy to fix and quick!!! For them: sirloin patty with caramelized onions and cream reduction and steamed new potatoes. Me, roasted fall vegetables and maple, mustard and pecan coated pork chop.

Sirloin Patty with caramelized onion and cream reduction.

Ingredients: 3 sirloin patties, 1 purple onion diced and chopped, 2 tsbp of butter, salt and pepper, 1 cup of heavy cream, salt and pepper.

In a frying pan, melt 1 tbsp of butter and when the butter is sizzling add the diced onion. Cook the onions on low-medium heat until they become brown and golden. Season with salt and pepper by sprinkling a little of each on the onions. Remove the onions from the pan. In the same pan, add 1 tsbp of butter and melt it. When it is sizzling, add the sirloin patties. Sprinkle salt and pepper on the steak and cook for 2 minutes. Flip the patties and cook for another 2 minutes. When they are cooked to the temperature that you like, set them aside and place them in warm oven to keep them warm. Meanwhile, add 1 cup of heavy cream in the frying pan and bring it to boil. Season with salt and pepper and keep cooking until the cream is reduced to its half and has become thicker.

To serve the steak, place the steak on the plate, spoon a little bit of sauce over the steak and spoon some onions over the sauce. Et voila!!!

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
