Cooking in a cast-iron skillet on a grill opens up delicious and easy possibilities for stylish sides for your proteins. In this recipe, beefy, simply seasoned New York strip steaks are topped generously with wilted onion rings and grape tomatoes. The vegetables cook in a hot skillet with a touch of sugar and balsamic to encourage caramelization — with no sticking on the grate and nothing lost to the fire. If you don’t have a cast-iron skillet, ovenproof stainless-steel also works. Or you can cook the vegetables on your stove over medium-high heat. The recipe is designed especially for the Yummly Smart Thermometer, but if you don’t have one, check the meat's temperature using an instant-read. The recipe is a Yummly original created by David Bonom.


  • 4 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil (divided)
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 1 tablespoon red wine vinegar
  • 1 tablespoon fresh thyme leaves (chopped, divided; you may not use all of it)
  • 2 boneless NY strip steaks (or bone-in, each 12 to 14 ounces and 1 to 1 1/4 inches thick)
  • 2 large yellow onions
  • 1 pint grape tomatoes (or cherry tomatoes)
  • 1 teaspoon salt (divided, plus more to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper (plus more to taste)
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1 tablespoon balsamic vinegar (plus more to taste)
  • 1 tablespoon salted butter

    1. Combine 2 tablespoons olive oil, the garlic, red wine vinegar, and 1 teaspoon thyme in a zip-top plastic bag. Add steaks, turning to coat, and seal bag. Refrigerate 1 to 4 hours, turning occasionally.
    2. Meanwhile, slice onions ¼ inch thick and separate into rings. Halve tomatoes lengthwise.
    3. Preheat a grill for high heat (450° to 550°). Set steaks on a plate and let stand at room temperature 20 minutes. Season with 3/4 teaspoon salt and ¼ teaspoon pepper.
