Steak Filets with Blue Cheese & Carmelized Onions

Ingredients Needed:

  • 2 Steak Filets, frozen to stay cold
  • 2 oz Blue Cheese
  • Carmelized Onions
  • 1 tbsp olive oil


  • Carmelize onions before leaving for camping trip.  Simply re-heat & serve.

Carmelized Onions

  • 2 tbsp of olive
  • 2 tbsp of butter
  • 1 large yellow onion, sliced into 1/2 inch rings
  • 1 tbsp sugar
  • salt

Heat a large sauté pan over medium-low heat. Add the oil/butter.  Once the butter has melted and is hot, add as many onions to the pan as will fit in a ½” layer in the pan. Sprinkle the salt over the onions.  Cook the onions over medium low heat.  Stir the onions every couple of minutes, and adjust the heat so you here just the merest sizzle.  Cook for 15 minutes then add sugar, continue cooking on medium-low to low heat for another 15 – 20 minutes, stirring frequently or until the onions are soft and anywhere from honey-colored to deep brown.  Let onions cool and place in a zip-lock bag.

Once on campsite to prepare dinner, simply heat your carmelized onions in a pot over high heat with 1 tablespoon of olive oil.  Place steaks on a grill or grate, top with Blue Cheese about one minute before desired doneness.  Plate and top with carmelized onions.
