This recipe is from "Quick and Eay Low-Carb Cooking" by Nancy Hughes. It was emailed to me and sounded like something I would enjoy. As with most recipes, if I leave it sitting around it will forever be lost in a sea of papers.

Paula another Winner! Used this sauce for DS homecoming steak dinner and he loved it!!! WOW and WOW! Such flavors from so few ingredients and such a quickie to make! I did use lots of carmelized onions (double) as we don't do mushrooms but love onions. I plan to use this sauce on a pork loin or chops as well. The flavors were robust but nor overpowering, you could roll the flavors around in your mouth with each bite but you tasted the steak first. Wonderful! Made for AUS/NZ Swap #44

We're used to do our steaks on the bbq. This recipe proves that it can be great even if it's not cooked on a bbq. We really liked it. The sauce is amazing. The taste is perfect. Thanks Paula :) Made for the Recipe Swap in the Australian forum
