Here is what you need to make Marinated Steak with Shoestring Onions:



For the Steak and Marinade:

  • 6 New York Steaks
  • 3/4 cup oil
  • 3 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon Worcester sauce
  • 2 tablespoons + 1 teaspoon soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons lime juice (fresh)
  • 2 tablespoons sugar
  • 3 garlic cloves (minced)
  • 1 tablespoon ginger (grated)
  • 1 teaspoon hot chili oil
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • Freshly ground pepper

For the Shoestring Onions:

  • 2 white onions (sliced thinly)
  • 2 cups buttermilk
  • 2 cups flour
  • 1 tablespoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cayenne pepper
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • Oil for frying


Steak and Marinade:

  1. In a mixing bowl, combine red wine vinegar, balsamic vinegar, Worcester sauce, soy sauce, lime juice, sugar, minced garlic, grated ginger, hot chili oil, salt, and freshly ground pepper. Mix these ingredients until well blended.
  2. Add oil to the mixture gradually while whisking continuously until the marinade is fully combined.
  3. Place the New York steaks in a gallon zip lock bag and pour the marinade over them. Seal the bag tightly, ensuring all the steaks are coated evenly. Refrigerate the bag for at least 4 hours, or ideally overnight, to allow the flavors to infuse into the meat.
  4. When ready to cook, remove the steaks from the marinade and discard the excess marinade. Cook the steaks on a grill or stovetop to your desired level of doneness, ensuring they are cooked thoroughly and evenly. Remember to adjust the cooking time based on the thickness of your steaks.
  5. Once cooked, allow the steaks to rest for a few minutes before serving to retain their juices. Slice the steaks against the grain to maximize tenderness.

Shoestring Onions:

  1. Using a mandoline slicer, thinly slice the white onions into rings. Place the sliced onions in a shallow baking dish.
  2. Pour buttermilk over the onions, ensuring they are completely covered. Allow the onions to soak in the buttermilk for at least 1 hour on the countertop. This step helps to soften the onions and enhance their flavor.
  3. In a separate bowl, combine flour, salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper to create the coating mixture.
  4. Heat oil in a pan to 375 degrees Fahrenheit (190 degrees Celsius), or until a pinch of flour sizzles when added to the oil.
  5. Using tongs, take a handful of onions from the buttermilk and coat them thoroughly in the flour mixture. Tap the onions lightly to remove excess flour before gently placing them in the hot oil.
  6. Fry the onions until golden brown and crispy, which should take just a few minutes. Keep a close eye on them, as they cook quickly.
  7. Once done, carefully remove the fried onions from the oil using a slotted spoon, and place them on a plate lined with paper towels to absorb any excess oil. Repeat this process until all the onions are cooked.
  8. Serve the shoestring onions immediately as a delightful accompaniment to the marinated steak.

In Conclusion:

Indulge in the irresistible combination of marinated steak and crispy shoestring onions with this recipe. The flavorsome marinade and the satisfying crunch of the onions create a truly memorable dining experience. Whether you’re hosting a special occasion or simply treating yourself to a gourmet meal, this dish is sure to impress.
