By Leanne Ely, 

Serves 4


  • 1 pound boneless beef round steak, trimmed of visible fat
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • Olive oil
  • 1 large red onion, thinly sliced
  • 3 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1/4 cup Leanne’s Easy Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing (see recipe below)
  • 4 cups broccoli florets, steamed
  • 2 tablespoons shaved Parmesan cheese


Season beef with pepper. In a large skillet with a tight-fitting lid, heat a little olive oil over medium heat.

Add steak and brown for 4 to 6 minutes per side or until the desired level of doneness is achieved. Remove from skillet to a cutting board and cover to keep warm. Add onion, garlic, and vinaigrette to skillet; stir.

Cover and simmer on low heat for 5 to 6 minutes, stirring occasionally, until onions are tender.

Meanwhile, steam broccoli. Cut steak across the grain (diagonally); top with onions. Serve with cheese sprinkled broccoli and enjoy!
