Pan-Roasted Ribeye with Caramelized Onions and White Truffle Butter


This is a savory steak with the slight sweetness of caramelized onions and the earthiness of truffle oil. I would serve this with some mashed goat cheese and a nice green veggie. This recipe could be for 2, you and your honey! A nice Cabernet would pair well, but I like so many that it's hard to choose. Cheers.

  • ¼ cup vegetable oil, divided

  • 3 large white onions, sliced 1/4-inch thick

  • ½ cup butter, room temperature

  • 1 small shallot, minced

  • 1 teaspoon white truffle oil

  • 2 (14 ounce) Black Angus ribeye steaks

  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste


  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C).

  2. Heat 2 tablespoons oil in a saucepan over medium-high heat. Add onions; cook, stirring occasionally, until onions are dark and soft, about 25 minutes.

  3. Mix butter, shallot, and truffle oil in a bowl until blended. Refrigerate until set, about 10 minutes.

  4. Preheat an oven-safe skillet over medium-high heat. Pour in remaining 2 tablespoons oil. Season steaks with salt and pepper on both sides. Cook steaks until browned, about 2 minutes per side. Cover with aluminum foil.

  5. Transfer skillet to the preheated oven and bake until steaks are reddish-pink and juicy in the center, 4 to 6 minutes. An instant-read thermometer inserted into the center should read 130 degrees F (54 degrees C). Let rest in the skillet, covered, about 5 minutes.

  6. Slice steaks and transfer to serving plates. Cover with onions; top with a slice of truffle butter.

Cook's Notes:

The butter and steak preparation can be done while onions are cooking. I like the onions dark, but you can stop cooking them at any time. Adjust cooking time for well-done steaks.

Reserve leftover pan juice for a nice sauce.
