  • 1/4 cup Cottee's Maple Flavoured Syrup
  • 3 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 4x 125g sirloin thin cut steaks, trimmed, about 1cm thickness

  1. Heat a dash of oil in a saucepan. Add the onions.
  2. Cover and cook over a medium heat until they begin to soften.
  3. Remove the lid and continue cooking for 10-15 minutes until the onions start to change colour. Add Cottee's Maple Flavoured Syrup and balsamic vinegar. Stir.
  4. Continue to cook over a medium heat uncovered for a further 30-35 minutes, until the onions are soft and caramelised, and the liquid is absorbed. Set aside.


  1. BBQ or quickly pan fry the sirloin steaks over a high heat until just cooked, turning once during cooking.
  2. Allow to rest for 5 minutes.


  1. Cut ciabatta pieces in half. Spread the tops and the bottoms of the bread with Eta Kiwi-style Onion Mayonnaise.
  2. Top half the bread with mesclun leaves, tomato slices, steak and caramelised onions. Cover with the remaining bread pieces.
