This was quite good. I'll definitely be making this one again. I used sirloin steak - it's all I had, and I substituted green onions for the chives. Thanks for the great recipe!
Yummy. I left out the mushrooms as my husband does not like them otherwise I made exactly as stated. We are "beaching it" and this steak was so nice - I wished I could have eaten more.
I changed this a bit to suit my family and it was good. I added crushed red pepper and substituted the mushrooms with summer squash and zucchini. YUMMY
