Caramelized onions make these veal steaks extra-special. Serve these steaks with a tossed green salad and rice or baked potatoes for a great family meal.


  • 2 teaspoons olive oil
  • 2 teaspoons butter
  • 2 medium onions (yellow or sweet, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced)
  • salt (to taste)
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • 2 to 4 veal strip steaks (or chops or fillets, about 1-inch thickness)
  • 1 or 2 cloves garlic (cut in half)
  • 2 to 3 teaspoons olive oil

Steps to Make It

  1. Gather the ingredients.

  2. In a skillet, heat olive oil and butter over medium heat.

  3. Add onions and cook, stirring frequently, until nicely browned - about 20 to 30 minutes.

  4. Coat a grill pan or large skillet with olive oil; place over medium-high heat.

  5. Rub steaks with the cut sides of the garlic and sprinkle with salt and pepper.

  6. Cook the steaks for about 2 to 3 minutes on each side, or until done as desired.

  7. Serve veal on a thin bed of caramelized onions and sprinkle with more strands of the caramelized onions.

  8. Enjoy!
