Pan seared steak with caramelized onion

Spring is just around the corner and with it comes the craving for barbeque and fresh cool salads
We can’t use our barbeque ( our deck is not up yet) so a good substitute for some bbq steak is to sear it on a heavy skillet Not the same thing but still pretty good !!
On the side a simple salad with a tropical twist

Pan seared steak with caramelized onion

Season the steaks with salt , pepper and peppercorns

In large skillet, heat oil over high heat; fry steaks, turning once, until browned and medium-rare inside
Transfer to plate; tent with foil and keep warm

In the same pan add the onion; sauté until just tender, Add minced garlic, thyme, salt , pepper and reduce heat to medium and cook until onions are golden, stirring often, add 1/4 cup wine; stir until almost all liquid evaporates,
Season to taste and serve over steak
