Recipe by  

"A very quick, easy, and inexpensive main dish to prepare. You can top this with sour cream before serving, if you'd like. Depending who will dine with me, I add some red pepper flakes for added pizzazz."

Good base recipe, I will make it again with a few changes. First of all I think I will leave the steaks whole next time, as the presentation wasn't very attractive. I also will substitute some or all of the water for beef broth. I'm glad I read the previous review because I would have included the spice pakcet from the wild rice mixture and it would have been WAY too much garlic flavor. Overall we enjoyed it, though, even pleased 2 out of 3 kids. Thanks for the recipe!

Boring and bland... thank goodness I read the reviews and then took into account the lazy palates of Americans. For those who want body and flavour, sautee fresh onions, cook rice in stock, add fresh chopped chillies and half a cup of hickory sauce.

If you use a flavored wild rice from a box, be sure you do NOT add the spice packet. This recipe adds spices, and the combination of worcestershire sauce gives a great flavor. My kids (ages 6 and 4) enjoyed it, and since the meat is cut during prep time, it saves time at the table. I added a 4-oz can of mushrooms, drained. This recipe will feed two adults and 2 children under 6 twice. My hubby had seconds, and we still have enough left over to have another meal. I think it would be great for a potluck. I served this with steamed broccoli and a roll.

Good stuff, only I changed it a little. I sauted onions with the butter and steak. I also used a rice a ronie wild rice box mix with the sauce packet. I didn't use the onion powder, garlic powder or worsheshire sauce. I also served it over biscuts which was delicious! guess i changed it a lot. but my kids loved it!

I made this recipe exactly as it was written without reading reviews first. I added the seasoning packet that came with the rice and the dish was excellent. Not too much garlic at all. Not too spicy. Hubby had three helpings and there was none left for lunch!

After 1 hour the rice was still severely undercooked. I have cooked the rice outside this recipe before and it came out great. The liquid ingredients in this recipe did not seem sufficient to steam the rice for as long as it needed to cook. I gave it one star because the taste was good...just crunchy.
