Onion-Smothered Sirloins

 Onion-Smothered Sirloins
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
