Cowboy Steaks With Onions

Print PrintShare with Friends

Prep:

Serve these bad boys with a side of Yucca Fries (Yucca Fries (Yuca) Recipe #153368) for a bona fide foot stompin' good meal! Adapted from Steven Raichlen. WINE: The chili rub and charred onions shout out for an equally zesty California Zinfandel. Look for such peppery, fruity examples as the Amici Cellars 2002 or a 1997 Alexander Valley or even the 2003 EOS.
