Thsi recipe comes from my grandmother's recipe box. The clipping said that this was a speciality of the Hotel Berlin in Moscow, Russia during the '60's. Updated to reflect modern tastes.

This was a really different way to prepare steaks for me, but it turned out really tasty! This was an easy dish to make and good for something different. Made for Zaar World Tour 4 for the Tastebud Tickling Travellers.
