Ok....to start off. I am cheap. Thrifty, penny pincher, frugal, coupon clipper....all of the above. So yes, this post is named STEAK....but for the record, I bought a nice sized sirloin roast and sliced it into 1inch pieces. Y'all are all welcome to buy whatever steak you want (if I was spending the extra moolla on dinner, I would choose beef tenderloin). But like I said....use any steak or piece of beef your little heart desires.
Now...start out with 2 tablespoons butter. Melt it in a large skillet on medium/high heat then add your pieces of meat. Season with salt and pepper.
Ok....can I tell you that my mouth is already watering??? So let your beef cook about 6-7 minutes on each side or until meat is cooked to your preference. (if you feel the need, use a meat thermometer and it should read 140 degrees for rare, 160 for medium, and 170 for well-done). Once your meat is cooked, remove onto a plate.
While the meat is sizzling on the skillet, take 1/2 of an onion and cut it into sections.
Separate the secions and place onto the skillet.
Keep skillet on medium heat and grab a smaller lid then cover the onions. It will steam and tenderize the onions in about 5 minutes.
Don't those look awesome! Now at this point don't pick one up and sneak into your mouth. It might cause your poor tongue to get a little singed....of course, I wouldn't know anything about that hehehehe ;)
Now, add about 1 - 2 tablespoons butter then sprinkle 1 tablespoon sweet rice flour into the pan. Whisk it around to incorporate flour completely.
Next whisk in 2/3 cup gluten free beef broth (pacific brand is awesome btw). Let simmer on medium heat until gravy reaches the desired consistency. Season with salt to desired taste, remove from heat, then ladle onto the awaiting steaks.
Beef with Onion Gravy
2 beef steaks (tenderloins, filets, ribeye's, sirloin, you get the picture)
4ish tablespoons butter divided
1/2 onion cut into sections and separated
1 tablespoon sweet rice flour
2/3 cup beef broth
salt and pepper to taste
In a large skillet melt half of the butter on medium/high heat. Add steaks seasoned with salt and pepper then cook approximately 6-7 minutes on each side or until desired. Remove steaks from skillet and add onions covering with a small lid to steam. Once tender (about 5 minutes) add additional butter then whisk in sweet rice flour. Gradually add in beef broth whisking continuously until smooth. Keep on medium heat until gravy reaches desired thickness. Spoon over beef and enjoy.
