  • 2medium red onions, cut into 8 wedges each
  • 1/2medium cabbage, cored and sliced 1/2 inch thick
  • 3tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  • 1teaspoon dried thyme
  • 3/4teaspoon salt, divided
  • 3/4teaspoon ground pepper, divided
  • 1pounds boneless strip steak (about 1 inch thick), trimmed
  • 1/2cup shredded sharp Cheddar, Gruyère or fontina cheese


  1. Preheat oven to 450°F.
  2. Combine onions, cabbage, 2 tablespoons oil, thyme and 1/2 teaspoon each salt and pepper in a large bowl. Transfer to a large rimmed baking sheet. Roast, stirring twice, until the vegetables are tender, 25 to 30 minutes.
  3. About 10 minutes before the vegetables are done, pat steak dry and cut into 4 equal portions. Sprinkle with 1/4 teaspoon each salt and pepper. Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat until very hot, but not smoking. Add the steaks and cook until browned on the bottom, 2 to 4 minutes. Turn over, reduce heat to medium-low and cook to desired doneness, 3 to 5 minutes for medium-rare. Transfer to a plate and loosely cover with foil.
  4. Push the vegetables into 4 mounds. Sprinkle 2 tablespoons cheese on each and return to the oven until melted, about 2 minutes. Serve the steaks with the vegetables.
