We have a red dirt bank that grass won't frow on. Any suggestions?

We bought our house a few years back and have been trying different things. We have put rock at the bottom but it gets pretty steep toward the top. I just want it covered!
We are cleaning off more of the weeds and small trees leaving the stumps to keep the bank from washing down
The round area is where plants are planted, haven't come in yet
