Skillet Steak With Mushroom Sauce

Total Time

I just made this for the first time last night and what a way to have steak! My DH has diverticulitis and loves steak, not good, but this was a great way for him to get his steak fix with out having an entire steak. Don't be put off by cooking steak in a skillet, it comes out so tender and the sauce compliments it sooo nicely. I used tarragon in place of thyme (all I had) and it came out mouthwatering...literally! I served with Sandi (from CA)'s Herb Infused Red Potatoes and a salad and was surprisingly stuffed! Hope you enjoy!
