Biggest changes I made were I used a bunch of fresh mushrooms (no need to use canned), italian seasoned bread crumbs, a shallot instead of a regular onion, and while the meat was cooking I threw in some minced garlic. The steak was good but it was like a mini meatloaf. I would add onions to the meat mixture and maybe more seasonings next time to give it more flavor. The gravy is good (I doubled the recipe) but it's not perfect. There's a tang to it (even though I added brown sugar to reduce the tang). Next time I think I will use 3 tbsp of ketchup instead of 4. My boyfriend loved the gravy as is but I want to play around with it some more. I served this with rice and peas (unusual, but I was too lazy to make mashed potatoes). My boyfriend loved this dinner and he said the leftovers were even better today. All in all I think this is a very good recipe but the gravy will need tweaking to suit your taste. Next time I will make it with regular onions and use less ketchup and add more spices.
