A tasty and fairly simple recipe. I use elk or venison steaks. I have served this to company with great results.

Good recipe. The 1/4 c flour in the mushroom sauce is not sufficient to thicken it. I let it boil down 20 min., then bit the bullet and added another 1/4 c flour in water to the boiling sauce. That did the trick. Try cubed portobello mushrooms for a more tasty sauce.

I spent a few years in Germany and I'd been hoping to find a good recipe for this. This one was incredible!!
