This dish is deceivingly delicous!!! When I told my boyfriend I was making it for dinner he wasn't too sure about pasta sauce over steak but after he tried it he couldn't believe the unique taste it had. The juices from the steak along with the wine totally change the flavor of the pasta sauce (I used chunky mushroom). I did cut the pasta sauce down to 1 1/2 cups and sauteed the garlic with the onions, and served it over garlic mashed potatoes as suggested. It was WONDERFUL!! Thanks for the great recipe!

Decent, but not great. I did not serve it with the potatoes, as suggested but with noodles. This MAY have contributed to it tasting like spaghetti with a different type of meat. But really, I don't think the potatoes would have made that much of a difference. We did like this, but honestly, with the cheaper price of ground beef, I think I may stick with that instead of the expensive steak.

I can't say enough good things about this recipe. Not only was it delicious it was so simple to put together. I can see myself making this at least two or three times a month. Thank you SO much for sharing this!

This recipe is delicious. I serve it frequently over garlic mashed potatoes. Sometimes for a quick meal, I evev use the instant garlic mashed. The sauce has a wonderful flavor that transforms itself and tastes nothing like the original pasta sauce. I also was worried that it would taste like "spaghetti sauce with steak strips", but it doesn't. It's a great recipe and part of our monthly rotation.

Wonderful recipe! The wine is key, I think, in making this not taste like pasta sauce on beef. I did mine in the crockpot (with no precooking) and it tasted wonderful. Served over a garlic mashed cauliflower/potato combo with steamed green beans on the side.

This is awesome when served on top garlic mashed potatoes; I wouldn't have it any other way! I've never had this turn out tasting like spaghetti sauce, and always use Ragu Chunky with Mushrooms. Sometimes I add mushrooms too, after the onions start to caramelize. If you find this tasting like spaghetti sauce, as some reviewers have experienced, try adding in a beef bullion cube as it simmers... also stay away from basil-rich sauces!

Great recipe, definitely a keeper! Watch cooking time though; I used thin slices and I like med rare steak so I cut the sauteeing and simmering time by about half. Thanks Lanelle for a simple and delicious recipe!
