I make this stuff all the time..did not know there was a recipe for it..Anyhow...I cook mine in the electric skillet and let it simmer for a long time to get tender and I also use Rotel instead ...

was a little disappointed... meat still lacked flavor. will try again though with some changes.

We loved the recipe mainly as is. My only contibution was adding a can of chopped green chilies with the onions. It was perfect. I will make this often. Going to use venison next time.

I absolutely LOVED this recipe!!!!! You should definitely season your steak before you put it in the skillet and I also added minced garlic when I put in the onions...Delicious!!!!

I didn't like this recipe; the steak needed seasoning and needed longer then 2 minutes to cook..I will not make this again.
