READY IN: 12mins

Skinny fast-fry steaks cook up in a snap. Top them with an irresistible mix of garden-ripe tomatoes and creamy blue cheese. From Chatelaine magizine.

Made for ZWT-8 Family Picks when I'd thawed minute steaks for dinner & decided I wasn't content to make my usual chicken fried steak w/gravy. So instead I found your recipe & turned a "routine" dinner into something spec served only w/rice smothered in caramelized onion - very simple to fix & simply great. This was so easy to prepare that it almost "fixed itself" & we loved the combo of flavours. While a great meal for us, a smaller portion could be an ideal starter for a dinner party. I'm so happy I found this recipe. Thx for sharing it w/us.
