pretty good flavor. I added a little sugar to offsett the tartness.
Wow! DH and I loved this! OK, this is what I did. I used some leftover diced tomatoes in sauce instead of the tomato paste. I omitted the water and I reduced the sauce to thicken it. I also could NOT bring myself to cook the steaks in a fry pan. (Top Loin New York Steak) I got at the discount area because of the use by date. So I grilled them. I served them with spaetzle instead of mashed potatoes and a salad on the side. The tomato sauce added a nice tang to the overall dish due to the balsamic vinegar. Excellent dish! The steak was nice and tender and the onion/mushrooms and tomato sauce was the finale. Thanks for posting. :) This is going in my top 2009 cookbook.
This made a good steak - the onions and mushrooms were wonderful. The tomato sauce was so-so - I think bluemoon was correct in thinking the tomato paste would be "sharp" - I wish I had used tomato sauce or pureed tomatoes instead of the paste. I used New York Strip steak. Made for 1-2-3 Hits Tag Game, 1/19/09 - NELady.
Made for 123 tag. Yummy yummy yummy...we liked this alot! I would use a lighter tomato sauce rather than paste just to lighten it up a bit next time...very nice recipe. I liked the hit of balsamic too!
Great recipe, the sauce is on the rich side so I'm going to cut back on the tomato paste next time or replace with tomato puree - and in the meantime I'll keep a lookout for Bush Tomato. Having said that, the whole family loved this, included my tomatophobic 9 year old.
Excellent recipe. The pepper on the steaks gave a nice bite, the caramelized onion and mushroom were divine, and the tomato/balsamic sauce was a nice sweet compliment to the whole recipe.
