  1. 5 stars
    This was amazing. I cut the recipe in half kind of. I had 1 lb of sirloin tip. I used a big clove of garlic, a whole sweet onion and about 10 oz of cremini mushrooms. The seasoning I had on hand was Meat Church Holy Gospel. I served it over mashed potatoes with a heavy handful of sliced scallions. My wife and I just kept looking at each other and smiling as we ate it. When we were finished my wife said I need to keep your recipe, and then kept saying how amazing it was until she fell asleep on the couch. I’m happy to say we have enough leftovers for breakfast. I think I’ll heat some up and lay a over easy fried egg over the top in the morning. Thanks for sharing Melissa.

    1. Hi Don, I think you get husband of the year award for making such a thoughtful meal for your wife. I’m delighted you both enjoyed this it is a family favorite. Thank you so much!

  2. I have printed out several of your recipes and have bought your cookbook recently. However, I find that you almost always have some ingredient that is NOT readily available in California (as far as I know)……like Montreal Steak Seasoning????? I made a recipe a couple of weeks ago that had “Mediterranean Herb Seasoning” as an ingredient.
    Another example is Vidalia onions. We do not have them in California markets but I just used a yellow onion instead. It would be a tremendous help if you could provide some information about what might be substituted for some of the ingredients your recipes call for. Not complaining…..but it could very well mean that I do not prepare a recipe for that lack of knowledge. Thanks.

    1. Hey Ron, thanks for picking up my book! I’m always happy to help with substitutions. When it comes to Vidalia’s, an OSO sweet or any sweet onion will do. Steak seasoning…the market is filled with different blends you can always adapt using your favorite or what’s available. Mediterranean herb can be sub’d with Italian or similar. There’s always a work around. Always.

  3. I make steak bites, onion, mushrooms and beef gravy and put it over rice or egg noodles. Yours sounds wonderful too.
