Tender steaks with a savory french onion and mushroom sauce, served over french bread. Fabulous! Taken from Cooking Light. Note: not sure why, but the nutritional information varies greatly between Zaar and Cooking Light. (Zaar is much higher in calories and fat content). You can decide if you'd like to take the plunge or not :)
