Made for ZWT-8 Family Picks when I'd thawed minute steaks for dinner & decided I wasn't content to make my usual chicken fried steak w/gravy. So instead I found your recipe & turned a "routine" dinner into something spec served only w/rice smothered in caramelized onion - very simple to fix & simply great. This was so easy to prepare that it almost "fixed itself" & we loved the combo of flavours. While a great meal for us, a smaller portion could be an ideal starter for a dinner party. I'm so happy I found this recipe. Thx for sharing it w/us.

This was sooo good. It was quick and really easy to prepare with wonderful flavor. We both loved it, the dh even cleaned his plate. I barbequed a sirloin steak and topped it with the tomatoes, green onions and goat cheese. (as I don't care for blue cheese) It worked really well with the rosemary and dijon mustard . Thanks for posting this tasty tasty recipe Anna, I'll be making this one again. Made for The Fearless Red Dragons - ZWT8 - France.
