I entered the Indiana State Beef Contest and won first place with this recipe. A mixture of picante sauce, ketchup, cider vinegar and veggies enhances the tender slices of steak that are served over pasta. I use bow tie pasta, but you could substitute rice. - Ann Dixon North Vernon, Indiana

"Wonderful meal that the entire family enjoyed! We especially liked the sweet-n-sour flavor of the sauce. We served it over egg noodles for a great Indiana-style dinner. Thanks!"

"I made this dish last week using venison instead of beef. It was great. My husband says it is a "keeper"."

"This dish is delicious! and easy to make - I have made it so many times that I am starting to make some substitutions and adjustments and it has been delicious every time. We have 7 children left at home now and they ask for this meal over and over. It is also a favorite of their's to prepare when they are on family cooking."
