Caramelized Onion & Grilled Flank Steak Quesadillas #SundaySupper

[ 30 ] July 22, 2012 |

I am so excited for this #SundaySupper with Katie Workman, author of the Mom 100 Cookbook. Katie shares the one hundred solutions/great tasting recipes useful for not just moms of course, but every parent.

This week our Sunday Supper Group is featuring Katie’s recipes, and some with our own spin. I used Katie’s basic quesadilla recipe and spun it to create these amazing Caramelized Onion and Grilled Flank Steak Quesadillas!

8 medium size 8 inch flour tortillas
2 cups shredded cheese
Filling: your choice

For our quesadillas, while I caramelized the sliced onions in butter and olive oil, my husband grilled the flank steak, that was marinating in the refrigerator earlier.

Once the flank steak rested, it was diced in small pieces so it would spread throughout the quesadilla more easily. We layered shredded cheese, flank steak, onions, and then a little more shredded cheese to hold it all together.

What resulted was the amazing melty, cheesy deliciousness that was pictured above, with an explosion of flavors! By varying the fillings, the whole family can enjoy a meal of quesadillas. Jed prefers just cheese, while Baby is slightly more adventurous and requests added steak on occasion. We make quesadillas so often, we have gone so far to purchase a quesadilla maker. This way we don’t have the hassle of flipping the tortillas in a regular pan and having the insides slide all over.

Now for one of my favorite sections of my #SundaySupper post…sharing all my fellow food bloggers amazing recipes! You definitely need to check out these awesome food blogs!

    You already had me drooling just by using caramelized onions, my little obsession. Then you added steak to the mix and in the end resulted in me running to the store to make these tonight! Thanks for the inspiration, and I am sure my husband will be thanking you for the great dinner tonight.

    This is perfect. We always have leftover flank steak because they only ever seem to have huge ones in my grocery store!
