    This is a great recipe! My husband and I really liked it. Most definitely will make again.

    Turned out excellent. I loved the meat, which I salted a few hours in advance - very juicy. The sauce was great, and really added the extra bit missing from the meat alone.

    ok so with the coronavirus and the people shopping like they're going into hibernation, I had to improvise. 1st, I used fully cooked beef fajitas in 1.5 lb bag in frig section of Walmart. They didn't have the crimini mushrooms so I just used the ones they carried. I used classic olive oil and followed instructions as far as baking time, making the tent, etc. I made the sauce but instead of placing on a plate and covering with sauce, I moved the meat into the electric skillet I used for the sauce and mixed it all together. It turned out great! oh yea, I only had thyme in a spice jar so I just sprinkled a tad into the sauce bc I wouldn't have been able to remove like the "twigs" from fresh thyme. We had some leftover until my husband got up around midnight and polished it off. He loved it. So did I. So that was my major tweaking on this recipe. And the beef fajita is already seasoned so it makes it that much better.💯

    Amazing. Made this for Valentines Day dinner to avoid the restaurant crowds. I have never had a better steak at one of our expensive restaurants. So tender and tasty. Also, it is an easy recipe to make.

    Turned out really well. I used a 2 lb cut and cooked a little longer. the sauce was perfect. Served it with some rosemary garlic potatoes. Delicious.
