Open-faced steak and onions on garlic toast

This recipe is an adaptation of a dish I found in a magazine. The original pan seared the steak and had spices my husband and I don’t really like so I made it suited to our taste. First my husband grilled the top sirloin rather than pan sear (or fry as hubby calls it). If you don’t have access to a grill, sear it in the pan and then finish the steak in the oven. It’s less mess and more flavor. For convenience, I used frozen Texas toast garlic bread. We like this brand but, honestly, homemade garlic bread would make the dish even better. Using your favorite frozen kind makes this a quick weeknight dinner. The original also used sourdough which, again, is not a favorite. I served this with a nice salad. Here’s my version:
