• Prime beef 32-ounce T-bone
• 3 onions, thinly sliced
• 2 Tablespoons oil
• Pinch salt
• 1 ounce Worcestershire
• 6 slices bacon
In a small pot with a lid, add oil and then thinly sliced onions on top. Cover with lid and simmer to release liquid from onions. Sweat them until they are soft and without color.
Remove lid and continue to cook, as the liquid starts to evaporate the onions will start to caramelize slowly. Stir with a wooden spoon for consistency.
When the onions reach a beautiful brown color and the bottom of the pot has a brown layer on it, add Worcestershire and salt and continue to stir. Should take about 30 minutes. Set aside.
Fry bacon in the same pan until crispy. Add onions to the bacon and reheat.
Grill steak to your desired temperature.
Serve steak with onions and bacon on top.
