This recipe is one for all you carnivores. Nothing like a good ole steak with some really great sauce. Don't get me wrong, sometimes a steak doesn't need anything other than cooking, but this sauce is pretty dog-gone good. It's excellent for company or just a special meal with your honey.

Loved it! We doubled the sauce so we could have plenty to serve over champ (mashed potato and cabbage). I also added a bit of half and half to add creaminess. The men of the house like their steaks sauce, but they thought this was great!! Thanks!

I had this steak for dinner tonight. I made as directed but threw in some mushrooms I had cooked a few days ago. I enjoyed this and am glad you shared. Bless you

This sauce is delicious!! I used extra garlic and some garlic powder and basted the steak with it near the end of cooking. We both ate soo fast. I will definately make again.
