Briefly cooking the gravy with thyme sprigs saves the time of stripping the tiny leaves from the stem, but still gives you the herb's woodsy flavor in this steak recipe. Serve over pasta, as instructed.

Good for lunch, or for dinner served with a cucumber salad.
Nutritional info does NOT include bread roll, so you can choose your own type. Ciabatta works well, and runs approx 120 cal for a 2 oz roll.
This sauce is wonderful, especially on chicken. But it's also great on fries, burgers, hot dogs -- anything. You might want to make a big batch and freeze some so it's always available. Brush it on whatever's grilling during the last 20 minutes. Otherwise, it will burn.

When making the zabaglione, make sure to cook the egg mixture in a glass bowl over water that is barely simmering. Glass conducts heat more evenly and gently than metal. If the heat is too high, the yolks around the edges of the bowl will start to scramble. Constant whisking is required. If necessary, you can use a single type of berry instead of mixed berries, but do not use frozen berries. A broilerproof pie plate or gratin dish can be used in place of the individual gratin dishes.

No-fuss caramelized onions. Serving size 2Tblsp.
Vidalia onions are especially nice, but any type will work. 2 lbs of onions will cook down to about 2 cups of caramelized onions, or 32 2-Tbls sized servings.
Keeps well in the refrigerator, can also be frozen. If you freeze in ice cube trays, you can store the serving-size cubes in a ziplock almost indefinitely.
