Magic of Onions

I use onions in many dishes.
Raw or cooked, they go with just about every vegetable and meat.
Oftentimes, just cooking them by themselves makes for a great side dish.
They really proved themselves in tonight's dinner.
We had some leftover steak that was quite tender, but not too overly tasty when we had it a couple of nights ago.
Dreading the idea of warming it up, I started thinking about how to disguise it in the meal.
Out came the onions.
After caramelizing them, I added some black pepper and olive oil to the pan.
The meat was sliced into thin pieces and warmed up in the cooked onions.
Those onions then performed their magic.
They made that steak so tasty, we were all wishing there was more.
A good trick to remember next time when the meat is just a bit lacking.
