This easy skillet is a fantastic way to stretch your grocery dollars and servings when you’re in the mood for a treat. Serve these steak tips over buttered rice or a heaping helping of mashed potatoes and a side of steamed green beans or broccoli and you’ll have a 5 star meal on a budget.

Smothered Steak Tips With Creamy Mushrooms And Onions
- 2 1/2 lb top round or sirloin steak cubed
- 1/4 cup soy sauce
- 1 Tbsp brown sugar
- 2 tsp Montreal steak seasoning
- 1 green onion finely chopped
- 2 cloves of garlic minced
- Olive oil
- 1 lb portabella or cremini mushrooms sliced
- 1 large Vidalia onion sliced into thin wedges
- 1/2-1 tsp Montreal steak seasoning
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 sprig fresh thyme
- 1 cup heavy cream
- Place the steak in a large plastic storage bag. Whisk together the soy sauce, brown sugar, steak seasoning, minced onion and garlic. Shake to coat. Marinate overnight in the refrigerator.
- To prepare, heat a few drizzles of oil in a large skillet. Remove the steak from the marinade and add to the pan. Discard the marinade.
- Saute the steak for around 5 minutes or until your desired doneness and browned. Remove from the pan.
- Add additional olive oil to the pan. Saute the mushrooms and onions for 5-7 minutes scraping any brown bits from the bottom of the pan. Season with an additional 1/2-1 tsp of steak seasoning salt and fresh thyme leaves. Adjust seasonings to your taste.
- After the mushrooms and onions have browned and the juices released have evaporated add the cream.
- Mix thoroughly and add the steak back to the pan cooking just until heated through.
- Serve immediately over mashed potatoes or buttered rice.
