Steak is our favorite, but I wanted something a little different using ingredients I had in the pantry. This one brings smiles to all who try it. —Marie Rizzio, Interlochen, Michigan

Cooked this for our 14th anniversary on Feb. 14, with baked potatoes and homemade peanut butter pie. Loved it! Going to make this again tonight!

MY REVIEW

These were sooo good! I added mushrooms with the onions. I did find it a little too peppery, but I was eating it my itself and without any sides, so that could make a difference. Will definitely make again and again!

A delicious way to cook a steak. We used a different cut and for the kids we did burger patties. Onions were just amazing. We'll definately be making this again. We served it with the potato fan and herbed asparagus on the side.

I love this, the onions really make it. I have also used the same recipe but used chicken instead of steak. Both are so delicious make it about twice a week sometimes adding more vinegar and molasses as a sauce.
