"This was very good! It was so simple to make and the steaks were very tender and juicy. The only thing I would change is that I would add a bit more flavor. I did add some seasoning salt and chopped green onion, but I think it still needed a bit more. Still, the steaks were very tender and this is a great busy weeknight dinner!"
