QUICK AND EASY STRIP STEAKS

You can enjoy a quick "fancy" dinner with these steaks, a salad, and a crusty bread.

4 strip steaks (approx. 12-oz each)
2 tbsp butter
1 tsp salt
1 1/4 tsp fresh ground black pepper, divided
1 large yellow onion, sliced
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1/4 tsp dried marjoram
2 tbsp cooking sherry*

Melt the butter in a large heavy skillet over high heat. Add the steaks and cook, turning only one time, to the desired doneness level. This will take about 10 minutes for medium-rare; adjust time accordingly.

Once steaks are done, sprinkle the salt and a teaspoon of the pepper over them. Remove from the skillet to the serving platter. Set platter on the stovetop and cover with foil to keep warm.

Add the onion slices, remaining pepper, garlic, and marjoram to the skillet; cook over medium heat for about 5 minutes until the onion is tender. Remove the skillet from the heat and add the sherry; mix well. Spoon the onion sauce over the steaks and serve immediately.
* White grape juice may be substituted for the cooking sherry, if desired.
