This was a delicious way to have steak (we used strip steak). I added mushrooms to the onion sauce and eliminated the shallot. Also I didn't have any wine so we used just chicken broth instead of wine and chicken broth. We had this with baked potatoes and salad with oatmeal cookies for desert. A great dinner.

What a deliciously flavorful rub for sirloin steak. My husband grabbed the A-1 and Heinz 57 from the cabinet, but after the first bite he never even opened the bottles. Now that is quite a compliment! :o) The onion sauce was also wonderful. Great just as it is, I wouldn't change a thing.

We bbq'd the steak but we did flip it as we were scared we were going to burn it. That turned out to be a good choice as the bottom side of the steak was getting too black. (Maybe your suggestion not to flip the meat is for broiling only?) I loved the onion sauce, it was delicious. I will add a few mushrooms next time too. Thanks for the recipe.

My husband loves cooked onions, I usually am not a fan, but LOVED the onions the way they were prepared in this recipe! The steak was amazing with the onions and sauce on top. I did not put all of it on the potatoes but agree that mashed potatoes is the best side to have with it.

Loved this. I had two pounds of sirloin steaks so I doubled the marinade for the steaks. It was raining out so I decided to do this on the stove instead of the grill. I followed the recipe except I simmered the steaks on the stove for ten minutes on each side. I then added the onion. I only had a sweet onion, so I used that. Hubby wanted some mushrooms, so I put them in too. I didn't have red wine so I used all chicken broth. This smelled SO good when cooking and tasted just as good. I am not a huge steak fan but I loved this. The rest of the family loved it too. Will make again.

Really, really great recipe. I made exactly as written, with garlic mashed potatoes, and it was outstanding. My DSs were so happy to have steak in the middle of the week! Thanks for a great one!

I skipped the shallot because I didn't have any, but other than that I made it exactly as written and it was incredible. I have made it twice now and broiled it both times. Can't wait to try it on the grill! Thanks for sharing!

This is just...OH! That means excellent, but my brain cells are busy reminiscing, so they can't help to form coherent sentences. Truth be told, my mind must be on vacation because I messed this recipe up a bit, (mostly the type, size, quantity and timing of the onions), but the essence remained. My husband, who doesn't like onions, loved them in this and couldn't get enough. He even reached over to my plate with his fork, which prompted a sort of politely tense sword fight with our respective utensils. (I won.) But I digress. Cook time was a little long for medium rare in my broiler since it continued to cook while "resting", so next time I'll cut it to about 9-10 minutes max. Outstanding recipe which is going straight into my ENCORE cookbook. Thanks, Barb!

The simple seasoning for the steaks is AWESOME! I will definitely use that again! I marinated my steaks for about an hour at room temperature and cooked as directed, I was a little leary about not turning them over, but 15 minutes was perfect for medium. The onions, however, were a bit too much - and I like onions! I added mushrooms to them and cooked twice as long as suggested and they were too big and not soft enough. Next time I would slice them more thinly, rather than cut in 8 wedges like I did.
