Prep

  1. Steak - Sprinkle with some salt and pepper and tenderize with a fork. (Can be done 1 day ahead)
  2. Onions / Brussels sprouts - (If prepping right before cooking, get oven heating before continuing with prep.) Prep as directed. Larger brussels sprouts should be quartered. Store separately. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)
  3. Caramelize onions - Heat up a frying pan over medium heat. Add oil (portion for steak) and then add onions to heated oil. Saute for ~10 minutes, until tender but still crunchy. If it looks like the onions or pan will burn at any point, just add a splash of water. Stir in with vinegar and maple syrup (portions for steak). Cook for another 2 minutes. (Can be done up to 5 days ahead)

Make

  1. Heat oven to 500F / 260C.
  2. Spread brussels sprouts out onto a sheet pan. Cover tightly with foil and then bake for ~6 minutes.
  3. Remove foil and toss brussels sprouts with oil, vinegar (portions for brussels sprouts), and mustard. Roast for another 8 to 10 minutes until crispy. Toss with maple syrup (portion for brussels sprouts) and salt, seasoning with more to taste.
  4. Heat a skillet over medium-high heat. Add some cooking oil and then steak to heated pan. Cook steak, without moving it, until one side is well seared, ~5 minutes. Flip and cook on the other side for 4 minutes. Lower heat to medium, cover with foil, and cook for another 2 to 3 minutes for medium-rare; 4 to 7 minutes for medium; 8 to 10 minutes for well-done.
  5. Set steak aside and let rest, covered, for 5 minutes.
  6. If onions were caramelized ahead of time, reheat them in the skillet with some water or just heat in the microwave for ~1 minute.
  7. Top steak with onions. Enjoy with brussels sprouts on the side.

Happy Valentines Day! I used flank steak cooked on the grill by my husband. Onions were a lovely addition. Added heart shaped carrots to the Brussels sprouts and added heart shaped roasted russet and sweet potato hearts (I cooked with the same method, only 10 minutes steam and 15 minutes uncovered. Also used the marinade from Lemony Greek CS meal where I first learned this method).
