I have just finished eating this for lunch and it was wonderful! I loved the sauce on top of the steak. I left out the zucchini as I didn't have any and I also grilled my steak before topping. I will be sure to make this again as it is so great tasting.
This was out of this world good. I can't believe how this tasted. It was like eating a steak from a steakhouse. I will be making this steak again and again. I followed the recipe to a T and everything was perfect. Thank you for such a darn good recipe.
