Steaks Esterhazy

READY IN: 30mins
Recipe by Julesong

After doing some research, it appears that this one is a German recipe although I haven't been able to determine it's origin. A recipe adoption. Note: This is a classic Hungarian recipe, not German. Classic Hungarian ingredients include mushrooms, sour cream and Hungarian paprika. Also, Esterhazy is the name of a noble Hungarian family and there is a castle with that name outside of Budapest.

A true home run. With only two of us there was some sauce left over. I put it on poached eggs the next morning. WOW. Another Home run. Thanx
