Inside Out Dinner

To celebrate our eventual move to Minnesota, we did a dinner for Inside Out since Riley's family is from Minnesota!  We also had our friend KC as a guest and she got to meet baby Olivia! 

For dinner we had Anger's Pan Seared Steak with a Red Wine and Caramelized Onion Sauce, Disgust's Broccoli Pizza, Sadness's Memories, Fear's Liquid Courage Cocktail, Joy's Almond Joy Truffles, and Bing Bong's Crying Candy.  It was a fantastic dinner!

Anger's Pan Seared Steak with a Red Wine and Caramelized Onions Sauce
We found some ideas on Pinterest and mixed them all together to create this amazing recipe!

1 Tablespoon of olive oil
1 Tablespoon of salt
1 Tablespoon of pepper
1 Tablespoon of Rosemary
Caramelized Onions with balsamic reduction and Port wine (from our Portuguese Try The World box)

1. Preheat the oven to 400 degrees.
2.  Simmer the caramelized onions with butter and a splash of Cabernet Sauvignon for five minutes.
3. Heat oil in a skillet over medium-high heat.
4. Combine Rosemary, pepper, and salt in a small bowl.
5. Season steaks with Rosemary mixture.
6. Sear steaks 2 minutes on each side.
