LordDrow 9y agoMy family looked at me funny when I cooked steak not on the grill. It was tasty but I think I would do the steaks on the grill and then add the Onions. Also added mushrooms to it and it was a nice touch.
cleverkt 10y agoFantastic! I loved it to pieces - I didn't even care what the rest of my family thought - though I had no complaints.
