"I came up with this for our dinner tonight and DH said that it was excellent and that I needed to post it on that "recipe website" The meat is simmered with the onions and peppers which are then made into a gravy. You could also add mushrooms which I didn't due to an allergy. I did, however, saute some on the side for DH."

"I was surprised at how enjoyable this was to make and what rich flavors were teased out of the ingredients. I was out of beef broth, so substituted ½ cup of Progresso cream of mushroom sauce, and also added a carrot, thinly sliced. I browned the meat in an iron skillet rather than non-stick and used Canola Oil, which permitted me to brown the meat more and the resulting fond in the bottom of the pan delivered a wonderful umami flavor when deglazed with the liquids and vegetables. However, I over-salted the sauce, which kept it from being a near-perfect result. I will definitely prepare this again."
"This was really good! I doubled the gravy directions and I'm glad I did! Served with mashed potatoes. My only regret is that I used thin cut chuck steaks and the meat wasn't as fork-tender as I'd like so it probably over cooked in initial browning-next time I'm going to use fat steaks to start. Thanks for sharing the technique!"
"This recipe is WONDERFUL!!!! I made it the same way except that my steak was already seasoned from the freezer, as I wash & season all meats before I freeze them. Maybe this made it better, but what a great recipe! My Hubby is a super-picky eater & he cleaned up the plate! Thank you and your DH for posting it! I will be making it again and again!"
"I saved it by adding tons of stuff which kinda of ruins the idea of a recipe. Bland. And I used the mushrooms and several different colors of peppers. I love potroasts of all kinds, but this needs a lot of work--bay leaf? worcestershire? thyme? garlic? something for flavor. Have to agree with a previous reviewer--very very plain."
"This recipe was pretty good. However, I found that the steak was very plain. I would make this again, however, I would add some steak spice. I served this meal with rice."
"This was nice! Followed it exactly as posted, except, I put in the pressure cooker."
"Wow, So delicious, tender and easy to prepare. DH & I really enjoyed this very much. I made it just like the recipe said, using the mushrooms & a whole onion they were so yummy with the gravy & steak. I have saved the recipe & will be making it again.Thank you for posting your recipe."
"AUSSIE/NZ Swap May 2008 Super simple to put together and very tender to eat! Dh and I enjoyed this for our workday meal. I did not use mushrooms (optional) but increased the onion to a whole onion. I love the gravy factor. It reminded me of my M-I-L roast, similar in taste and tenderness. I neer could get it right and this is close. This will be a save for sure! I used some leftovers in Recipe #288413. YUMMY"
