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

    4 servings


  • 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

  • In a bowl, combine the garlic powder, 1/2 teaspoon salt, cumin, oregano and pepper flakes. Rub over the steaks; set aside.
