It's time to go big with this Texas-style steak on toast. We start with a juicy sirloin steak, the perfect cut for slicing and serving over thick-cut toast, then smother it with an over-the-top (literally!) red onion gravy. Next to smashed red potatoes, the elements of this dish all meld together seamlessly for truly Texas-sized flavors.
My daughter and I absolutely loved this recipe!!! I'll definitely order this one again.
Hands down one of my favorite Home Chef meals. Steak was tender and the onions were a perfect accompaniment.
