Sweet caramelized onions add great flavor to these rosemary-rubbed steaks. Serve them with baked potatoes and a Caesar salad. Or complement the entree with cooked carrot sticks and apple pie a la mode.

"The steaks were very moist, I made them a little different. I did what the first paragraph said. While another skillet, I cooked the steaks on both sides for a few minutes. Then put in a foil lined baking dish and poured the onion mixture on top. Baked @350 for 30 minutes. Wonderful!"
