Onion-Smothered Sirloins Recipe

Onion-Smothered Sirloins Recipe

Friends and family love these savory steaks and sweet onions. The dinner is simple to prepare and the flavor is fantastic. I usually serve it with corn and baked potatoes cooked on the grill as well. For spicier steaks, increase the pepper flakes and cumin. —Tina Michalicka Hudson, Florida
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 10 min. Grill: 45 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 3/4 teaspoon salt, divided
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1/4 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 4 boneless beef sirloin steaks (about 8 ounces each and 1 inch thick)
  • 2 large sweet onions, cut into 1/2-inch slices and separated into rings
  • 1/4 cup olive oil
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1 medium lime, cut into quarters

Directions

  • 1. In a bowl, combine the garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, cumin, oregano and pepper flakes. Rub over the steaks; set aside.
  • 2. Place onions in a disposable foil pan; add oil and toss to coat. Grill, covered, over medium heat for 30-40 minutes or until golden brown, stirring occasionally. Season onions with pepper, remaining salt and a squeeze of lime.
  • 3. Grill steaks, uncovered, over medium heat for 7-10 minutes on each side or until meat reaches desired doneness (for medium-rare, a meat thermometer should read 145°; medium, 160°; well-done, 170°). Squeeze remaining lime over the steaks; top with onions. Yield: 4 servings.
