      Delish and so easy. Did add some fresh mushrooms saute in butter. Used NY strip steaks, some sauce over potatoes, very good. Will keep this one. Thank you, Kitty

      Outstanding sauce. Really easy to do. My wife rated it "the best she's ever had!" The only sauce for steak you'll ever need.
