This was fabulous. I had no idea how to cook steak and needed something easy and quick, and this was just the recipe! I used 1/4 tsp garlic powder instead of the garlic clove. I served it over egg noodles and my husband and I devoured it. Mmm!! We'll be using this recipe again.

Delicious! I made this the first time I ever cooked for my boyfriend...very simple, and he raved about it the rest of the night!
