Let me just say, this was the best tasting, most succulent piece of beef I have ever eaten! The two steaks cost just over $21 :eek: , but I only ate 1/2 mine. It was worth every last cent! And how often would I spend $$ like that on beef? Once a year!

 

If you're planning on a special meal, like beef...you've got to give this one a try.

 

One more thing...after cooking the steaks the amount of time in the recipe, they were still too raw, so I put them in the micro for 1 minute. Then they were perfect! I can still taste it! bcbsalute.gif

This recipe is FABULOUS smile.gif

 

I had to substitute regular mushrooms for the shiitake, but I don't think it made a huge difference.

 

Now I just have to save my pennies, to be able to afford it again. ;)
