  1. Very yummy. Couple small changes, reduced noodles to 6 oz & steaks to 1 1/4 lb which normally feeds 4 comfortably in our household. Cut the salt abit also. Everything came out perfect. I really enjoyed the mushroom sauce, thanks for sharing.
  2. I mixed everything up and put it in a pan on the grill and cooked it on low for about an hour. This was really good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written other then I didn't add as much salt. I also didn't use the butter and cook the mushroom first. I just added them all to the pan. Hubby really enjoyed it. I love that it is easy to put together and is made with ingredients I normally have on hand.
  3. This is a great simple recipe, only a few ingredients but the flavour is fantastic, both DH & I loved this and will be this making again soon. I only had sweet sherry so I used that and I wasn't able to get canned french onion soup so I used a half pkt dried french onion soup with a little extra water, was still fabulous even with my substitutions. Thanks Lainey.
  4. Great comfort food when you want something quick and delicious.
  5. I made this for my mom who wasn't feeling good. She loved it. I used beef broth instead of sherry.
