"Very good flavor! I couldn't get the rub to completely stay on the steaks when I turned them in the skillet, but I had made extra, so I added more once they were in the baking pan. The sauce really complemented the flavors."

"I made this for my husband's birthday dinner and it was perfect! Delicious, tender, great combination of flavors! I did not have any red wine so used a good quality dark balsamic vinegar and the gravy was amazing."
