We are taking the humble minute steak on a wild ride with tangy, caramelised, jammy red onions, a quick aioli and peppery rocket, all sandwiched between two golden grilled pieces of garlic bread. The key to a tender minute steak is using very high heat, so you can sear the outside while the inside stays tender and medium doneness.
This recipe is suitable for LATEST Weber Q + 3rd Gen models only.
For the balsamic onions, add the red onion and butter to a pan and cook over a medium heat for 5 minutes or until softened. Add the brown sugar and balsamic vinegar, cook for a further 10 minutes or until caramelised and jammy. Remove from the heat and set aside.
