1. Turn the oven temperature down to 300 degrees.

2. In a large skillet over medium-high heat, heat 2 tablespoons of the oil. Add the onions, salt, and pepper. Cook, stirring often, for 15 minutes, or until golden. Set aside ½ cup of the onions for the hash.

3. Sprinkle the steaks with salt and pepper. In a large skillet with an ovenproof handle over medium high-heat, heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add the steaks and do not touch for 2 to 3 minutes or until the underside is browned. Turn and cook 2 to 3 minutes. Transfer the skillet to the oven and cook the steaks for 5 to 8 minutes, or until a thermometer inserted into the center of the steaks registers 130 degrees for medium rare. Cook 3 minutes more for medium.

4. Transfer the steaks to a warm plate and let them rest in a warm place for 10 minutes. Cut into slices. Reserve 4 slices of steak for the hash. Serve the remaining steak with onions and the potato mixture. Sprinkle with parsley. Sally Pasley Vargas
