I had no steak seasoning but I added 2 dabs of Worcestershire sauce and voila. It's a big hit with the fam.

I changed the liquid to 1.5 cup of broth and 1.5 cup milk. Added onion, mushroom, and green pepper. Garlic powder and Worcestershire sauce, kept the rest the same.

My son's favorite dinner! And we like it too. Everyone has different tastes, and this recipe is super easy to manipulate to accommodate whatever fits your personal tastes. I don't buy Montreal Steak Seasoning, but whatever seasoning you do use will work in this recipe. I typically cut down the broth by a half cup to make it cook faster and makes it creamier, but like I said before, it's easy to adjust to fit your own needs and taste buds!

sadly think I'll pass on this one. the ingredients don't grab my attention saying "make me" plus ingredients are directed to low cal low sodium low fat. I dont have a big appetite but also don't typically purpose these ingreds. MSSeasoning usually (I've looked) contain MSG unless I make my own-sorry for neg post.

I made this tonight because it used just a few ingredients and looked quick. This was incredibly tasty! I thought the Montreal steak spice gave it some extra kick, and I'm surprised that some other reviewers found it bland. It thickened just right for me (again, many reviewers seemed to have a problem with this). I made this exactly as is and will definitely make again! My picky two year old gave it a huge thumbs up and had 2nds...then 3rds!

This was easy, quick and wonderful. It reminds me of my Mom's American Chop Suey recipe but without the heavy tomato base. The whole family loved it. I had no problem with too much liquid or not thick enough. It was great! Thank you for sharing we will be making this again.
