Good basic recipe. Was looking for something that didn't require a lot of gravy mixes (usually way to high in sodium) for our family. I made a few changes. I used a combination of light flavored olive oil and butter, cause I have found butter by itself tends to burn easily. Instead of onion and garlic powder I used the real thing, sauteing sliced onion till lightly golden, then adding 5 cloves of minced garlic toward the end (it cooks faster) . I omitted the salt, because I used Progresso beef broth instead of water and its got plenty of salt. I sauteed 8 oz. of baby bella mushrooms in with the onion and garlic) so I could omit the can of mushroom soup. I then added milk and cream, using a 2 to 1 ratio. Put in on simmer for 30 minutes, then served with mash potatoes and glazed carrots. It was a big hit. Thanks again.
Simple and delicious, and the kids love it. This recipe works well with pork tenderloin too.
Made this last night just like many others!! I absolutely love this quick and easy dish, especially after a long day at work. Browning the steaks first makes a huge diff in the tenderness, and don't opt out on the drippings!! That's where all the flavor lives!
