Expert Tips

Don't be in a rush to caramelize the onions. Cooking them longer over medium heat brings out their natural sweetness and helps to avoid burning.

To broil steak, place steak on broiler pan. Broil with top about 4 inches from heat 4 1/2 minutes per side for medium rare or until desired doneness. Transfer steak to cutting board; let rest 10 minutes.

If you’re in the mood to splurge, try using New York strip steak in place of the flank steak. Don’t be in a rush to caramelize the onions. Cooking them longer over medium heat brings out their natural sweetness and helps to avoid burning.
