  1. Sprinkle the steak with the salt and pepper.

  2. Heat 1/2 Tbsp of the oil in a large cast-iron skillet over high heat. Add the steak and sear for about 3 minutes. Turn the steak over, reduce the heat to medium, and cook for 4 to 6 minutes, or longer as desired for doneness. Remove the steak from the pan and keep it warm.

  3. Add the remaining oil to the pan. Add the onions and sauté over medium heat for 5 minutes. Add the water, thyme, and brown sugar, cover the pan, and simmer over medium-low heat for 10 minutes, until the onions are very soft.

  4. Slice the steak. Serve the slices covered with the onions.

    I didn't have strip steak, so I made this with elk tenderloins and added a few mushrooms. Excellent flavor! Will definitely make again.

    Yum just yum! The only thing I should have done was trim the steaks a bit better. Other than that excellent meal!
