Steak Tips with Peppered Mushroom Gravy

My husband never complains about the food I cook.  I always ask him what he rates the meals I cook and he usually never gives me less than a 10.  Yet, when I offer to make {some} meals again he politely declines or offers another option.  It makes me laugh.  But, tonight...tonight was different.  First, he cooked this meal.  I helped with some measurements and cleaned up as he made a mess cooked.  When he took his first bite he wowed himself.  I have to admit, it was pretty good.  Next time, we will cut the meat a little smaller.  That's it, enjoy! 

Results from hubs: The meal was rich in flavor.  The noodles were the perfect compliment for the light creamy sauce and steak tips.

  1. Mark does the same so I've started asking him if this is a meal I should make again. :)
