Swiss Steak with Sautéed Onions and Light Balsamic Butter Sauce

Marathon Day is two days away!!! GAH and I recently found out my iron was low, so I decided it was time to try and take on steak.  Usually I just leave this to my dad or a restaurant but enough was enough!  I am a strong woman and cook and I can cook a damn steak!  And cook a damn good steak is exactly what I did! This wasn’t as hard as I thought it would be and paired with some sautéed spinach and smashed potatoes you have an amazing dinner.  Enough jabbering, heres how you make it!


  • swiss center cut steak
  • 2 small onions
  • 2 ish tablespoons butter
  • splash of oil
  • 2 teaspoons balsamic vinegar
  • montreal steak seasoning

How to:

  1. Begin by putting your pan onto medium low heat and adding a splash of oil to the pan, and then your sliced onions.
  2. Let these cook for 5/10 minutes until just starting to get tender.
  3. Meanwhile, take out your steak and sprinkle a bit of montreal steak seasoning onto it and press it in lightly.
  4. Turn up the heat on the pan to medium high to sear both sides.  Let the steak cook for 3 minutes on each side then lower the temp just a bit and continue to cook.
  5. Add in the butter and balsamic and cover continuing to cook for 10 minutes.
  6. Once everything looks glazed and saucy its all done!
  7. Put on top of smashed potatoes and enjoy!!
