STEAK WITH CAPER SAUCE
Course: Main Dishes
Serves: 4 to 6
Prep: Easy
Method: Stove Top Cooking

INGREDIENTS

4 pounds porterhouse or sirloin steak cut 3/4 inch thick
Salt and pepper to taste
1/3 cup Filippo Berio Robusto Extra Virgin Olive Oil
2 large red onions, peeled and coarsely chopped
3 tablespoons capers in salt, well rinsed and minced
Juice of 3 large lemons

DIRECTIONS

1.
Rub the steak with salt and pepper and allow to sit at room temperature for 30 minutes.
2.
Pour the olive oil into a large sauté pan, add the onions and cook over low heat for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally. Transfer the onions to a bowl. Keep the onions warm as the steak finished grilling.
3.
Preheat a grill to 500°F, then before grilling, reduce the temperature to 350°F. Grill the steak to an internal temperature of 140°F for rare, 150°F for medium-rare, 160°F for medium, and 170°F for well-done.
4.
Alternately, you can use the same sauté pan to cook the steak, instead of using a grill. Raise the heat and add the steak to the pan. Brown the meat on both sides over medium high heat. Reduce the heat to medium and stir in the capers and lemon juice. Cook to taste.
5.
Serve with some of the pan juices over the steak.
